LuLu's favorite toys/ best treats for foraging toys

So for a while I couldn't get lulu to play with her toys. I though she wasn't happy or that maybe she was to bored so I was constantly buying toys. But now I've found her FAVORITE!! Lulu loves to chew and forage (but she doesn't chew wood). Which is good for me because I can make those toys. I'm aways saving cereal boxes, small cardboard boxes, newspaper, anything she can tear up. She especial loves the cereal boxes because she can swing from them.

But my question to you guys is, what do you guys put inside your foraging toys? I just stuff mine with paper and whatever dry food I have like pasta, crackers, or sometimes bird seeds (from my budgies)..I would appreciate you guys' suggestions!!

Thanks in advance

Nuts (cashews, almonds, pistachios etc..), nutra-berries, cinnamon sticks, apple slices, carrot sticks, pieces of toast (I use Ezekiel sprout bread, human bread).

I echo what Echo said above
I also put the odd cheerio in the foraging toys. My baby loooves them! I also use pieces of rice cake (plain, no salt), snap peas, corn cob rounds.
Don't forget to hide some foot toys too.
