Default Re: safe fruits and veggies

The download lists cilantro as ok, but I personally decided against it after reading a member's comments posted in response to one of my questions--you can see the thread here:

viewtopic.php?f=6&t=10127

When I give kiwi and strawberries, I make sure to cut the seeds out. I haven't given raspberries yet because of all the seeds.

I also read yougurt is ok (unsweetened) even though hedgehogs have trouble with dairy, because the lactobacillus in the yougurt breaks down the lactose and makes it ok to digest.

It's confusing...we are new at this and just got our first hedgie in January so I'm certainly no expert....I agree there's a lot on info out there that sometimes is contradictory.
