Does anyone know if snails eat cooked vegetables? My reasoning behind this was that it would be much easier to grind cooked vegetables than raw ones. Of course, raw vegetables retain more nutrients, but in crushed food, the cooked vegetables can act sort of as 'filler.' I haven't tried feeding my snails cooked vegetables, but I'll be trying it soon.
Sure, they will. Just make sure you don't cook them with salt or spices, only water or steam (or gentle microwaving). When slightly warm, the food will also smell more, which sometimes helps the appetite of weaker snails. The majority of snail food should be non-cooked, but it's occasionally nice for a bit of variety.
mine always eat n clear both cooked and raw. I just wouldn't feed them just cooked veg alone as some nutrients do get destroyed in cooking. In the pet food industry they add a lot of vit and minerals back to the food that the cooking destroys.

I suggest blanching them to make them soft and sink, so they can eat them easily. Cut vegetables into coin shapes as possible, so they can sit evently on the bottom. Put them in boiling water from 3-5 minutes depending on the produce item. A strawberry will take only 1-2 minutes, whereas, fresh kale should be in at least 5 minutes or it will not sink. Then put the produce taken directly from the boiling pot into an ice cold water bath in a large bowl. This stops the cooking process. Once they sink, take them out and allow to sit to get to room temperature, then put them in the tank for snail friends.
