Guinea lynx has a food chart with a list of the vehgies/fruits they can have, along with how often. Each piggy should get 1/8 of pellets (either oxbow, or KMS), 1 cup of veggies a day, and unlimited long strand hay (the most common type is Timothy hay).
Most people don't change the veggies they feed everyday, personally I stick to Green leaf lettuce, baby bell peppers, and cucumber. The piggys also get broccoli, a small piece of tomato, or some other veggie if we have them around.
As far as vegetables, I feed red and green romaine, red and green leaf lettuce, radicchio, bell pepper, an occasional baby carrot, tomatoes, corn husks when corn is in season, cilantro. I try and steer clear of high calcium and gassy vegetables.
One whole carrot a day, per pig, is way too much. Definitely cut back to one baby carrot per pig.i maybe a bad pig owner. But i always gave each of my pigs 1 carrot a day. The regular ones, not the babies. after re reading that chart i may not do that anymore... might just be sticking with romaine and cucumbers. And the occasional veggies leftover from dinner. I also did to many apples! Cut back on that also. 1 of my pig hates bell peppers, ill have to see how my 2 new ones like them. I may also have been giving them a tad to much pellets. Ill have to manually measure it out next time for visual.

If your pigs won't eat bell peppers, chop a piece of pepper up into tiny pieces and mix it in with their pellets. That's how I got Callie to start liking them. Bell peppers are a good source of vitamin C, so they should be given daily.
