Guinea Pigs' food

Introducing new veggies

There are two toddlers in the house and one of them was recently weaned. Ms M somehow thought the phase of introducing new veggies to creatures around her to be over. She couldn’t be more wrong…

The Gang is officially on diet. The long story in another post. So carrots, pear, apple, other fruits are out of the question. As they already have some preferences, the humans were left with limited options to build a balanced menu for them.

Broccoli was a “veggie non grata” for the boys, but Ms M remembered that kids need several interactions with a veggie to accept it. So she decided to give it another try for the piggies too.

First time, Kirk was really reluctant. He looked at her with that face saying “are you out of your mind if you think I would even consider eating this thing!”. Spock didn’t even go next to it. Data sniffed it. And we have no idea about Archy, as he was to scared to get out of his wooden house. Probably scared of broccoli.

But they saw there was nothing else for dinner so they took the risk and a bite. And one bite became two and three and look, the broccoli is gone!

Now broccoli is on their weekly menu and they usually eat it.
