When I was a kid, I ate a lot of crayons. Also rocks, coins, glue, earwigs, and more, but that’s another story. If crayons had vitamins, the kids would be eating healthy.

       but do we want to encourage children to eat crayons?

       No dessert until you finish your crayons!

       Amos, what was your favorite color?

       waugsqueke, it was "grape". Many crayon colors were food names, but they all tasted alike.

       "I would recommend the 1925 Burghundy, sir. Or, if sir has a taste for something a little lighter, perhaps the 1963 Forest Green."

       A fine selection Detly. Pure vintage crayola.   

       I don't think Crayon companies are going to stop naming their crayons after foods so you might as well make them taste good and put vitamins in them.

       Make'em taste like Brussels Sprouts or Broccoli. This would stop kids eating them forever.

       Why not sell the vegetables coated in coloured wax?

       I'm surprised at the positive votes.   

       Crayons are not meant to be eaten, though they may state on the box "non-toxic". So the target population for fortified crayons is bound to be minuscule.
