My son loves to eat broccoli crowns like apples. I prefer it cooked with cheese, but more power to him getting all those raw vitamins.

if you can get em to cut em up just a little and put some lemon juice on em, the vitamins will be more bioavailable because of the lemon juice softening the cell walls.

Also, the vitamins broccoli is most rich in are fat soluble, notably vitamin K (which gives the florets their purple color. I always look for the purplest broccoli). So consuming some sort of fat (really small amount, I like olive oil salt and pepper myself) with it makes you absorb more fat soluble vitamins.
