Should I deep on trying fruits and veggies that the piggies don't seem to like to see if they develop a taste for them or just try them once or twice?

I have tried a veggie which they didn't eat, and then about 2 weeks later I would try it again. Actually I found that by leaving the veggies they didnt eat in the cage for a few extra hours my piggies would eventually breakdown and nibble on those veggies they first didn't want since there was nothing left but those.

I give small portions of new veggies every day for several days and leave them in the cage for a few hours. They have rarely refused any new veggies or fruits.

So far they have both refused cucumber, yellow squash, green pepper and grapes. They were a cruelty case prior to being in the shelter so something tells me all of this is new to them. They do love their grass though!:)
