We love cream crackers in our home, and eat them all the time. Our daughter especially adores them and can munch on them all day long.
You can pretty much put most things on them, and they are a great savoury snack.
But can guinea pigs eat cream crackers and if so how much can they eat?
Lets take a look and find out by looking at their nutritional data
Saturated fat 5 g 25%
Polyunsaturated fat 10 g
Monounsaturated fat 6 g
Trans fat 0.5 g
Cholesterol 3 mg 1%
Sodium 973 mg 40%
Potassium 156 mg 4%
Total Carbohydrate 59 g 19%
Dietary fiber 2.3 g 9%
Sugar 4.5 g
Protein 11 g 22%
Vitamin A 3%
Vitamin C 0%
Vitamin D 0%
Vitamin B-6 10%
Vitamin B-12 5%
As per normal, the fat, calcium, sugar, oxelate and phosphorus content is what I am most interested in as far guinea pigs are concerned. Also, a decent amount of vitamin a and c is always a bonus as far as guinea pigs are concerned.
As you can see from the data, they are really high in fat which says straight away that piggies should steer clear of them as far as their diet is concerned.
So guinea pigs can’t eat cream crackers, which is a shame but there are other great foods that they could eat.
If they are presented with them, they will nibble on them, but they are not very good for them. So keep the to yourselves and don’t feel guilty about it 🙂
