Worms don't have teeth but this doesn't stop them from being very efficient composters. They like a varied diet but here is a list of your worms absolute favourites.

As the food softens they use their tiny mouths to process the waste so food that is soft and wet is their favourite.

Top of the list is;

Avocado and Banana skins mixed with coffee grounds

Melon rinds. Cantaloupe, honey dew, watermelon, etc. They love sweet foods with soft flesh.

Non-citrus fruit. Berries, apples, pears, etc. Be careful with citrus because too much can burn their sensitive skin.

Squashes. The soft flesh is easy for them to eat

Having said all this a mixture is fine for your worms, just add your waste gradually and don't over do the volume and your worms will recycle the waste into the world's best compost and liquid feed.

If you've got an abundance of the foods above and are currently just throwing them in your bin it maybe time for you to give Worm Composting a go! Our new Urbalive Worm Composter makes composting easy, attractive and odour free! Find more information here;
