Should I give my guinea pig a muesli style feed, I've heard it's bad for them as it encourages selective feeding?
"Our personal opinion (as experienced guinea pig parents) is that criticism of muesli style mixes is a little unfair. Muesli, per say, is not the issue, it can actually encourage foraging and provide added enrichment if it's a good quality mix. Additionally, it's a handy tool for an underweight guinea pig that needs a boost. BUT the problem is if it's overfeed. There's then a high risk of the guinea pig selectively feeding and not getting the right nutritional balance. If a guinea pig is getting 80-90% hay, 5% nuggets, a cup of fresh greens and fresh drinking water daily then it's getting a decent balance. In this case, muesli is a perfectly suitable complementary feed." - Rik, Co-founder of HayPigs!
