What food can I feed to my Worms?

Worms are decomposers and they consume organic matter and convert it into nutrient-rich compost. They like to eat a variety of organic materials, such as:

  • Fruit and vegetable scraps
  • Coffee grounds and filters
  • Tea leaves and bags
  • Eggshells
  • Crushed egg cartons
  • Shredded newspaper or cardboard
  • Dry leaves
  • Grass clippings
  • Hair and fur
  • Manure from herbivorous animals

Worms are able to eat a wide variety of food, but the best food for worms are fruits and vegetables scraps, as they are high in moisture and provide a balanced ratio of carbon to nitrogen.
