Greens such as collard, turnip, mustard, dandelion, endive, watercress, hard squashes such as acorn(shredded), snow peas, apples, oranges, pears, peaches, melons, strawberries, raspberries, and bananas. Feed fruit every few days, veggies daily.

Fruit should compose the smallest part of the diet in herbivores, no more than 10% of the total diet (mixed salad and greens) over time. Fruit doesn’t add a lot in terms of nutrition, it does help provide color (attractiveness) and moisture to the diet. Fruits also have high amounts of phosphorus which can upset the calcium to phosphorus ration leading to MBD(Metabolic Bone Disease). Figs are one of the best fruits as they contain a high amount of calcium.
