How can I get my house rabbit to eat vegetables?

My rabbit eats a diet of hay, pellets, and yogurt (as a treat). I cannot get her to even try vegetables like romain, carrots, and radish. What can I do to get her to add good vegetables to her diet?

Edit: She is 5-6 months old.

Tell her, "No yogurt until you finish your vegetables!" :-)

Seriously, the idea that rabbits are addicted to carrots is a myth, probably from the Bugs Bunny cartoon. They live in places all over the world where there are no carrots. I've also read that rabbits will starve on a diet of only carrots.

Never seen one eat a radish either. What you're feeding her is fine. If she appears to be healthy and happy, let her pass on the veggies and enjoy her yogurt dessert.
