The majority of a domestic rabbit’s diet should be made up of good quality fresh hay. Vegetables, Fruit and Herbs should also be included in moderation to ensure your rabbits get a balanced diet. The grid below will show you what Vegetables, Fruit and Herbs are safe for your rabbit to eat, this is not an exhaustive list but these are recognised foods that are suitable for rabbits. If your introducing new foods to your rabbit make sure you do it slowly and in small quantities to ensure it doesn’t upset your rabbit’s stomach.
Fruit should be fed in small quantities due to the naturally occurring high sugar content.
