Turtle diets and eating habits discussed here.

Hi, so I've been making a few posts on here lately. This one is about my baby turtles eating veggies. So, they're about 2 inches (or their shell at least), and one's a red eared slider and the other's a yellow bellied slider. I've had them for about 2 months now, and I read that you're supposed to feed turtles veggies eventually. So, can I try feeding them some now? All they eat right now are Reptomin pellets. Thanks in advance.
