Question Dried cranberries - can I feed sweetened?

Hey all! It's been a while since I've posted, how've you been?

I'm planning some recipes to make for the fids on Thanksgiving, but one of the recipes has left me stumped.

The recipe calls for some dried cranberries, but the only dried cranberries I can find anywhere near me are sweetened. I'm wondering if these would still be okay to feed? I assume they aren't, but I figured I'd ask anyway.

Here are the sweetened cranberries in question.

Thanks

Re: Dried cranberries - can I feed sweetened?

It’s ok IF AND ONLY IF you don’t make a habit of giving sweetened food and this is just a one off thing.

Sweetened doesn’t mean toxic. These won’t hurt anything short term. It’s just extreme junk food.

As with all things junk food, The big danger is making things like this a frequent, significant part of the overall diet.

One off is fine. And maybe not ALL the leftovers you might have from it.
