Special Dietary Needs: Amazons have a tendency to be obese as well as an elevated need for Vitamin A. In order to combat obesity, high fat foods like seeds and nuts should be fed very sparingly, if at all. Foods rich in vitamin A should be fed daily. A few good examples include carrots, sweet potatoes, cantaloupe, and peaches.
