Widthings Swan & Duck Food is "Better Than Bread" which has many negative impacts on these wild birds and the aquatic environment they inhabit.

Why is it "Better Than Bread"? 
Bead and bread products, especially white bread are low in vitamin E and magnesium and have excessive carbohydrate content and fill the birds with a food that is wholly unsuitable for their nutritional needs. Excessive bread consumption with associated lack of vitamins can lead to "Angel Wing" in swans, a condition that causes the wings to twist and drop and is irreversible unless caught in the very early stages.

Pieces of bread and sandwiches, pizza and cake sink and quickly decay providing a fertile breeding ground for harmful bacteria. Botulism in particular is fatal to swans. This same decomposing material also encourages the growth of Aspergillus, a mould that gets in to the lungs of ducks and causes illness and death. Large amounts of uneaten bread products also have a negative effect on the water chemistry and promote undesirable algae growth.

Wildthings Swan & Duck Food provides essential vitamins and minerals, floats on the water so is accessible for longer to the feeding birds and significantly reduces waste and decay. Swans and Ducks also find the food extremely tasty so ditch the bread and help our much loved swan and duck population keep healthy and with us for future generations of those in pursuit of a great day out by the water.
