Iceberg Lettuce

 Feed in Moderation
  • Common Name: Iceberg Lettuce
  • Latin Name: Lactuca sativa
  • Family Name: Asteraceae/Compositae
Iceberg Lettuce has less nutritional value than other types of lettuce, but the high water content makes it useful to feed for purposes of hydration in hot weather. 

Most lettuces are mainly water, but some have slightly higher nutritional value, such as Red Leaf LettuceFriséeRomaine and Radicchio, so they are better choices than Iceberg, but should still be fed in moderation only, and as part of a wider more varied diet.
