    I'm with Robin on this one. The fruit is more of a treat and
    not really necessary. Although if you haven't tried cut up
    oranges with the rind, give it a try. All my Senegals will eat
    it and some, even the rind.
    Also, as Robin mentioned, a warm bean mix is an absolute
    favorite. I work in finely chopped vegetable and greens so
    it's extra nutitious and appealing.
