    Diarrhea Too Many Veggies?

    I never thought I'd have to ask this question, but is it really possible to give them too many veggies?

    Sick Odd Poop, Mucous? (Natalie)

    Vegetables Oriental Kale?

    Whenever I go veggie shopping, I see Oriental Kale and I wonder if I can feed it because it is SO pretty. My girls aren't very fond of regular kale, so I thought maybe they would like Oriental Kale if it tasted different. Can I even feed it?
