Talking Some good info on veggies and fruit for our babies

Since we've had a couple of posts about this recently (one of them mine, about apples) I thought I'd post this:

Update 8/24/13 - please see post #16 for updated link.

Bounce, you're the joy and sparkle in my life (with the heart shaped tongue).
Bonnie, you're my sweet girl who will never be forgotten or replaced.

Thanks for sharing! I've been wondering lately about fruits and veggies. I use to think you weren't supposed to give dogs fruit.

Thanks for posting. I've recently started home cooking and I've been wanting to vary the veggie portion of Leo's meals...this helps!

Thanks for posting this, Linda! I love cantelope and I am happy that my fluffs can have it. I am surprised that bananas were not mentioned. My girls love them.

Such wonderful information...thank you! Bella loves green beans, so I'm glad that they made the list. Her other favorite snack is a couple of cubed peach pieces. Hopefully those also provide something beneficial for her diet, because it is her very favorite treat .

Thanks, Linda!

Bailey loves veggies, but fruit not so much.

Delighted to hear that carrots are good for 'em, because my boy LOVES carrots and would do just about anything if he thought it would get him a piece of one.
