I just hate the fillers and chemicals and crap that is put into processed foods. Both for animals and people. Haha As for eating veggies as he gets older, he's 10 and doesn't really get that he's supposed to be eating them. I'll try fresh veggies again in a bit, but for now I wanted to get him used to it their flavor this way.

Oh sorry didn't realize your turtle was that old. Maybe he just likes meat. Can't blame him I do too!!

No worries. (-: haha I'm a vegetarian but ate meat for many years before that, so I get why he might miss it on the days I try to give him greens. I've worked with picky eaters before (mostly people, but still) and I've found the best way to get veggies into them is through a trick or two. Hence why I fell in love with the jello idea. Not to mention I'm in complete control over what I put into it. Got to love that.
