other foods to avoid are:

Food dyes
Sulfites (found in dried fruits and veggies to help preserve them-only from health food store)
Nuts (brazil nuts, almonds, imported nuts that have been polished/dyed)

FAT
Avoid feeding high fat foods; excess fat over time can cause fatty liver disease, obesity, diarrhea and oily feather texture. Excess fat in the diet can also interfere with the absorbtion of other nutrients, such as calcium.
