Things you're surprised that kids eat

My oldest child is 2 1/2 and I work very hard to make sure he is exposed to a wide variety of foods so that he'll grow up appreciating food. While we fight the normal vegetable battles (and top them all with cheese to get them in him), I have also been pleasantly surprised at some of the meals he likes. Who would think a kid that young would like curry? So as I endevour to cook new and interesting foods for him that get him eating more than chicken nuggets, I'd love to know what you were surprised to find kids will eat in your experiences cooking for younger ones. Here's my list:
- Curry
- Anything with coconut milk
- Seared scallops and grilled shrimp
- Edamame
