Strawberry Health Concerns
Strawberries are winners when it comes to flavor, but are not choice for nutrition. Below are some of the health concerns you should be aware of when feeding strawberries to bearded dragons.Poor Calcium to Phosphorus Ratio
Bearded dragons need calcium for skeletal health, however strawberries have more phosphorus than calcium which is not ideal. This is because phosphorus prevents calcium from being absorbed (read our calcium guide for more details). This means you will need to serve strawberries with other foods rich in calcium like arugula or kale to keep the minerals balanced.Strawberries are Acidic
Strawberries have an average pH of 3.3, which is too acidic for bearded dragons. Acidic foods can cause mouth and digestion discomfort when fed to bearded dragons too regularly. You can offset this discomfort by cutting strawberries into smaller pieces and mixing in foods that are more alkaline like kale.

Below are some other items worth mentioning regarding strawberry nutrition.Low Sugar Content
Surprisingly strawberries are lower in sugar than you think. Many reptile blogs incorrectly state strawberries have too much sugar for bearded dragons, but a 100g serving of strawberries only contains 4.9g of sugar, which is about the same as carrots.
