This pack contains 500gms of dry food so it will last several weeks. After that you can put them onto fresh food if you want to. Sprinkling dry food onto their fresh leaves is a good way to serve it or spray the lid of your housing with clean water and sprinkle the dry powder onto it so it sticks and the snails can climb up and hoover it up.

Dry food provides an excellent start for baby snails and supports them throughout the growing period because it provides everything they need to grow, particularly to grow strong shells.
