8 types of human foods that turtles can consume

Fresh Fruits and Veggies

Your turtle may like fresh produce from your fridge or pantry as much as you do. Kale, collard greens, and mustard greens are healthy and delightful because they love leafy greens. 

Canned Fruits and Vegetables

You may have missed the farmer's market and run out of produce. Rest confident that your turtle will happily eat canned food. 

Canned Fish

Turtles and fish eat each other because they live in water. Share sardines, anchovies, and other fishy delights with your turtle with the can opener.

Fresh Fish

Fresh fish is better for your turtle than canned. However, most grocery store fish lack the phosphate and calcium turtles need, so don't overfeed your turtle salmon.

Cooked Chicken

Turtles don't eat chicken, but they'll appreciate a piece of your grilled bird. The secret is to avoid salt and other seasonings.

Ground Beef

You can give your turtle a bite or two of ground meat, surprisingly. Like chicken, drain the oil and make sure it's plain before throwing it in the tank.


Your aquatic friend can consume pig, fish, chicken, and beef. The pork should be unseasoned, patted dry, and fully cooked.


Turtles should not consume eggs, yet they can. Eggs include protein, iron, and cholesterol, which turtles should avoid. Thus, give your turtle eggs sparingly, if ever.
