    Broccoli is the tastiest veggie to get your nutrients from. Yay broccoli!

    Good idea for the broccoli to resemble the tree…but why not go ahead and make it all edible….a centerpiece at a potluck, say?   Little sliced carrots for the ladder steps, and the treehouse with other crunchy delicious vegetable bits and or almond slices or waterchestnuts? Even a few cherry tomatoes placed with toothpicks in the tree? An edible veggie tree.
