    We're also doing the mixed rice bit, started out with 25% brown to 75% white, slowly adjust till we are now 75% brown to 25% white. At first my son would not eat the brown rice, but since the slow incorporation, he's adapted to it. I think if you slowly incorporate it to your diet, then your chance of success would be greater than an abrupt change.

    soak the rice (and all grains and pulses)

    Rice and all grains contain phytic acid, which prevents the nourishing stuff being digested; apparently not soaking rice is a contributing factor to starvation in Africa (I am not starting a political debate). It is much better to soak all grains and pulses. Another side effect from not soaking beans can be seen with excess flatulence! The trick is to soak them overnight in water, if you are extra keen you can then cook the rice slowly (2 hours) with seaweed, whey or meat stock. By soaking and cooking with flavours it should make the rice far more palletable for kids. There's loads of stuff on the internet if you are interested. I find frying off the brown rice after soaking and cooking makes it more palletable for my 16 month old daughter. I know it seems a lot of effort but worth a try.
