    Default Mixed Fruit-Any Suggestions Pls

    Hi

    As always looking for a healthy low calorie alternative to add to the girls biscuits apart from the broccoli ,green beans and carrots which I feed daily as a filler and I also note MC has suggested rice cakes which I have fed as a treat in between meals .I called into Holland and Barrett before to have a look for mixed dried fruit but I couldn't see any plus I was unsure about raisins being OK and with a lot of dried fruit the sugar content increases so I left with just two packs of rice cakes .
    So any guidance pls on what is OK and where to buy from .

    Apple is ok to give - Sparky loves it!

    I know there is a lot of natural sugar in a lot of fruits & also a lot of vit c in some which can upset the tummys!

    My "kids" love strawberries, blueberries, melon, tangerine....I could go on, but truth be told, they love everything. As long as it is something to eat, they will eat it. I've seen blueberries listed as an ingredient on several high-end (read expensive) dog food.

    My two love Bannana whether it be dried or fresh and apples. They have dried apricot occasionally when they are at my mums but I dont like it so dont buy it!!

    Charlie likes Strawberries but Ruby doesnt and they both LOVE natural yogurt which they get a bit of every couple of days!
    MMMM- ah to be a dog!!
    I think they eat better than me...correction They DO eat better than me!

    I wouldn't be adding fruit to the diet when you have issues with weight Brian. Dried friuits are particularly high in calories.
