From what I’ve read ya just have to keep offering a variety of fruits and veggies till ya find what they like. Mine still has not eaten anything but crickets and meal worms. I just keep trying, I have also tried banana and apple, as well as shredded carrots, shredded sweet potato, kale and romaine lettuce. So far she just seems to want whats alive!
Going to the grocery store tomorrow to pick up a variety of stuff I havent tried yet, lets hope I can find SOMETHING she will eat.

Good luck to us both.

Ours seems to really like bananas, but it took a while. I have found that he is picky about what dish he uses. I have also purchased the freezedried fruits and veggies... he seems to like them okay, but prefers his bananas and lettuce.

My best advice is try fruits mixed together and separate... mine didn’t eat anything but crickets and bananas and I had to start mixing other things in with the bananas so he would at least try them.

My wife gave them pasta and they licked all the sauce like crazy. spanky my male was doing the hard puff noise when she took it away. i guess they are a little Italian.

my wife feeds them all kinds of stuff now. she does not over due it though she is scared that the might die if they eat choc late or things like that. i will give you a list of the foods they like soon I’m writing them down little by little. i can tell you they like banana’s and tomato sauce.

I am still figuring out what mine will eat as well. It loves banana, canned cat food, and tonight he chose grapes over meal worms. I still can’t seem to get it to eat veggies though. I will have to try tomato sauce :-) .
