How can I get my red-eared slider to eat?

My red eared slider hasn't eaten for about a day. Should I be worried? How can I get him to eat?

Sometimes, especially during winter months, re-eared sliders eat very little, so I don't believe one day of not eating is cause for worry. You can try tempting him with a variety of foods - fish and fish bones, worms, snails, crickets, flies, slugs, Romaine lettuce, grapes, strawberries, squash, apples. Make sure the water is clean to avoid illness.
