It's hard to keep your NeoPet healthy and happy when it comes to food. There
are so many tempting chocolates, sweets, and greasy pizza choices, it's easy
to ignore the nutrient-rich, delicious meals scattered around the site. But
they're there, hidden behind the tempting piles of fattening burgers. My NeoPets,
_Dustie_ and Kiksterman, have offered their opinions and we've compiled this
list of fifteen mouthwatering foods from all over the site, not just the Health
Shop, for health concious owners and their pets.
Filling and healthy, this combination is great on its own. Full of calcium,
proteins, and essential vitamins, owners appreciate its nutritional benefits
and my pets love its rich, meaty taste.
Broccoli and Cheese Pizza
For the pet that must have pizza, this is one of the healthiest choices available.
Cheese and broccoli are both packed with calcium, especially when combined,
and the broccoli gives growing pets tons of vitamins. The tomato sauce is a
great vegetable source also.
A cooking pot mix, this surprisingly tantalizing plate rules as a side dish
or a main course, and provides beta-carotene and vitamin A for good vision and
a shiny coat. Plus, it contains a blueberry fruit serving.
Now my pets and I both I love asparagus, so we were really excited when the
health shop came out with asparagus products. One of their choices, Cheesy Asparagus,
is full of the vegetable protein pets need, topped with calcium-rich, tasty
cheddar cheese, making for a hot, yummy side dish.
Cheesy Cod and Tofu Burger
Great for semi-vegetarian pets, this seafood enhanced treat has all the benefits
of soy plus the protein and vitamins of fish steaks. This is my one of my pets'
Constantly a popular choice, this low-fat calcium source is great with dinner
for pets who would rather not drink milk plain, the way _Dustie_ was when she
was a youngster.
Mmmmm, better than corn-on-the-cob, this stack of corn comes in a large serving,
so be sure your pets can eat it, or have them split it. If they can, they'll
get massive amounts of vitamins and a large vegetable serving. _Dustie_ and
Kiksterman love to munch on this together.
Ergy Fruit and most anything containing it is full of natural sugars and vitamins
so you can get up and keep going for hours. My pets enjoy this in the form of
Ergybroccoli, giving them an extra punch of energy.
The Faerie Queen Burrito
The making of this burrito is overseen by the Faerie Queen herself, and is full
of protein and all sorts of vitamins. While it has a higher calorie and carbohydrate
content, this is great for active pets.
Prime Veggie Burger
All the vegetarian owners out there (including me) will jump for joy when they
find their pets gleefully wolfing down a Veggie Burger. Packed with protein
and hearty vegetable servings, this slightly more expensive main course is worth
the extra Neopoints.
Filled with energy-supplying carbs, the stacked bread is a great choice for
pets who need extra energy. Plus, the inside contains natural raspberry jam,
adding a sweet surprise of 2 fruit servings.
Most people take this treat straight to the Neggery, but pets can benefit from
this unique fruit (yes, it is a fruit). This sweet snack is the equivalent of
4 fruit servings, and is one of _Dustie_'s personal favourites. We recommend
serving this raw so the nutrients aren't cooked out of it.
A classic snack, this is great for any lactose-intolerant pets, or vegans obviously.
It's calcium enhanced, so your pet doesn't miss out on any benefits. Kiksterman
loves this cut up into bite-sized cubes.
All the hearty goodness of sausage minus the fat! This breakfast was carefully
created to taste exactly like sausage, but with lots of soy for longer, healthier
lives. My pets enjoy munching on this with Hot Cakes.
Vegetarian Sea Taco
Some pets can't get enough tacos, and this treat has a distinctly fishy flavour,
minus the meat! It is full of vegetables found in the sea, providing pets with
unique vitamins that make their coats gleam. Kiksterman enjoys this on the go
because of its tasty, mess-free appeal.
So there you go! It's possible to keep your pets healthy while still satisfying
their taste buds. Of course, these are just fifteen examples. Each pet has different
tastes, so keep an eye out for healthy foods and experiment. And don't forget
to treat your pet to the occasional Ferrero Rocher or Creamy Choccowhip!
