Baby Corn - also known as cornlets

Guinea pigs can eat baby corn (from the maize plant) in small amounts a couple of times a week. These small cobs are picked before they become fully mature so can be eaten in whole, unlike the mature corn cobs which have a hard, inedible cob.

There isn't much information about the nutritional value of these cornlets but remember that the diet of your guinea pig should largely be green leafy vegetables with a small amount of other vegetable so feed sparingly.
