If they already have a food available made specifically for rats, then the diet is probably pretty decent. I give my rat extras like steamed broccoli, walnuts or small bits of apple as a treat. What type of rat food are you using? If it's just lab chow (those large nugget things) that's not enough. I use a mix that has various grains, nuts and seeds in it plus some small nugget treats. Don't worry if your rat doesn't like everything you offer.
