We have all done it, taken a loaf of bread to go to the duck pond to feed the ducks, well there are alternatives which are better for the ducks.

According to NewsWest 9, the worst thing you can feed the ducks with is bread. With all the carbohydrates, bread is basically junk food to the ducks.

Alternatives for a little more healthy food for the ducks would be grapes cut in half, frozen peas, or even grains of any kind.

Feed stores will have pellets that are also a lot more healthy for the ducks to eat.

So just remember that the ducks are getting the equivalent of potato chips and greasy french fries if you feed them bread. Just like us they will eat it, but its just not a real healthy choice in their diet.
