    You can already give them treats.

    Mashed up peas, or carrots, boiled potatoes, tomatoes, scrambled or boiled eggs.


    These are good for them and they will LOVE them .

    Once they get a little bit older, they wont need to be mashed.

    PEAS!!! Corn too. Save the corn til they're a few months old though.

    Just remember, frozen not canned. Canned food is not only super bad for humans, it's just as bad for pets.

    you can mash them with your fingers. or a fork. depends on what is easier for you but they have to be close to like mashed potatoes lol
