Trying new foods. Any advice?

Postby Terra213 » Sun Jun 10, 2018 3:06 pm

I'm trying so hard to branch out Torrin's diet, but he keeps turning his nose up at it. Strawberries, sweet potato, yellow squash, cantaloupe, broccoli, brussel sprouts, snap peas, mustard greens, blueberries, carrot, raspberries, all nothing. I might get him to take a bite or two but then nothing.
The only things he will consistently eat are dandelion greens, romaine, acorn squash, green grapes and mango. I've tried mixing stuff together, turns his nose up at it. I want him to be healthy and eat a good variety. Any advice or is he just a picky eater?

He's still a little guy right? I wouldn't worry about him ignoring veges too much. Try offering a variety of bugs like black soldier fly larvae, silk worms, roaches, crickets etc. Gutload the roaches and crickets with veges and keep offering a decent variety but don't be too surprised if he eats limited amounts until he is fully grown between about 12-18 months and older when his diet will change to mostly vegetarian.
