Yes, guinea pigs can eat bananas. Bananas are a fruit that is high in both sugar and potassium. Sugar is perfect for energy while potassium helps to maintain a healthy heart and muscles. They also contain vitamin C which aids in the growth of new cells and provides antioxidant protection from free radicals, so they’re great for your guinea pig’s immune system too!

Tips and Warnings: Guinea pigs should avoid eating bananas that are bruised, moldy or rotten. They also shouldn’t be given too many because they’re high in sugar and potassium which can lead to health problems such as diabetes or heart disease if over-consumed.
