I gave mine raw, chopped up into chunks. Just make sure you dont use it straight from the fridge (I made that mistake the first time ).

I slice mine very thin using a mandolin. Then micro it for about 10 secs to soften up. He scoffs it!!

Chopped, skinned and raw - the size usually depends on what you're giving it to, but even babies will happily gnaw away on a 1" cube - they just work at the corners, taking off bite-sized chunks. I tend to practically grate it (or chop it that fine) to make their lives a bit easier though.
