So my little piggy will be three weeks tomorrow and we were told he should have some real food in his diet by then. So last night this was his first solid meal:

It included spinach, strawberries, tofu, pineapple, greek yogurt, and medicated pig feed. He loved everything except the medicated pig feed(it's supposed to ensure he gets nutrition he might be missing because he isn't on real sow milk).

This morning we gave him a solid breakfast:

It consisted of mushrooms, strawberries, bananas, and medicated pig feed. Once again he ate around the medicated pig feed.

So any ideas of how to get him to eat the pig feed or anything I should maybe add to his diet?

Could you moisten the pig feed with warm water, mash it up, then mix in his favorite fruits/veggies/whatever he likes?

Also, instead of using warm water, you could use whatever else you think he may find delectable (maybe warm chicken or vegetable broth? I don't know).

The pig feed looks like rabbit pellets, by the way. =P

We tried mashing it up with his replacement milk but maybe we could mix it with greek yogurt or strawberries, he loves strawberries.

Perhaps make him a sort of milkshake of it, the yogurt, and the strawberries/bananas?
When he's consuming the shake reliably, leave some small chunks of the pigfeed, and slowly increase their size?
yeah my only suggestion would be to grind/mash up the feed and mix it in with something he likes.
