I know stuff like onions and tomatoes aren't good for them, pits in fruits aren't good for them, neither are apple seeds although Nero eats whole rotting apples all the time, I think since the seeds aren't chewed up it's not as toxic. Green beans, carrots, peas are fine to feed, I use them as treats for the fatty. They love berries although I don't really know how good/bad they are.

I don't know many, but here are a few bad ones.

Grapes
Raisins - Contain an unknown toxin, which can damage the kidneys.

Pits from Peaches and Plums - Can cause obstruction of the digestive tract.

Persimmons - Seeds can cause intestinal obstruction and enteritis.

Tomatoes - also contain atropine, which can cause dilated pupils, tremors, and heart arrhythmias. The highest concentration of atropine is found in the leaves and stems of tomato plants, with less in unripe (green) tomatoes, and even less in ripe (red) tomatoes.

squash, sweet potatoes and baby carrots are a big hit here. Also fresh pinapple. I haven't found alot of fruits and veggies my girls don't like.
Shay really loves spinach too. :)

Veggies like cabbage, Kale and broccoli(and anything in the family) shouldn't be given in large amounts. They cause gas and can create severe digestive upset that can be fatal - in all animals.
