Default Fruit and Veggie List

I credit everyone who contributed to this list on the old forum, especially iamdbf who started the list to begin with and jumbled it all into 1 messy post every so often :P . I am simply reorganizing it here.

Generally fruits will be given raw and veggies cooked. Frozen food is too hard for hedgies so make sure that if frozen fruits/veggies are used that they are thawed out well.

The items in the blue section are safe, the red are things to avoid.

Fruits-Cherry, Apple, Watermelon, Bannanna, Pears, Strawberry, Cantaloupe, Papaya, Mango, Peaches, Pumpkin, Squash, Honeydew, Cranberries, Rasberry, Blackberry, Plum, Blueberry (remove the skin it can be a choking hazard.)

Veggies- Carrots, Sweet Potato, Raddish, Turnip, Green Pepper, Asparagus, Corn (unseasoned), Broccoli, Peas(the mushy part inside),

Fruits- Grapes, Raisins, Avocados, Oranges, Lemons, Lime, Grapefruit,Pineapple.

Veggies - Onions, Lettuce, Garlic, Chives, Mushrooms ( see my post on the 6th page), Tomatoe

Anything with small seeds presents a choking hazard and overly acidic fruits are definitely not good for hedgies

Things Not Sure Of -Cucumber,Beans, Cauliflower, Zuchini, Cabbage, Celery, Pomogranete (take the seeds out of the umm... seeds?), Coconut, Kiwi, Starfruit

It would be better to start that on a new thread I think unless we could get this topic renamed. If you want to feel free or if you'd rather not I can.

Great idea for the post, I just hope you don't feel I stole it :P

We tried to get everything that we felt was important from the old forum. I guess this list was missed.

I didn't feel you stole it, but for future reference, if over 50% of a post contributed by one persons post, they probably should be credited. oh god! i have rabies! mouth foam!(look, no lines to show teeth)
