Are strawberries ok for sliders? I read on turtleforum that one person gives them to their turt to play with and snack on.

They're OK as a treat. Something you don't want to give more than once a month (like all fruit).

They are very good for fruit. Low sugar, high vitamin C. I give my kids a Strawberry once or twice a month. My beardie isn't a fan, but the turts love it.
