What do you feed rats?

I know there is rat food that I can buy. Is there something special about it? You see rats eating from the garbage on TV. Can I feed my rat leftovers?

It's best to feed rats the commercial mixes made specifically for them. They are available in most pet shops. You can add a variety of fruits and vegetables along with cooked meat, bread, yogurt, small dog biscuits and more. Keep portions to about a teaspoonful . Some of the foods you shouldn't  feed are highly spiced foods, sugary foods, anything that contains caffeine, carbonated beverages or dried corn. Always check food for freshness.
