Brussels are fine, not 100% sure on the beans though.

Brussel Sprouts & Green Beans are in the Safe part of the Safe and Unsafe Foods list on HC Wiki

Hi, brussel sprouts are fine in small quantities, but, like cabbage, contain a lot of oxalic acid. As for the green beans, well, my little Piccolo adores them and has them at least twice a week. For one portion, I give her whole one. Look out for 'Boston beans' or 'Fine Beans'. They are very safe and Picky's favourite thing ever!

When we have sprouts, I give Toffee half of a small one. He loves them. He also likes shredded cabbage.

I buy a few loose from the supermarket just for the animals. That way I can't be made to eat any.
