I have a horsfield tortoise. Currently the foods that my little jingle is on is :
Lambs lettuce
Dandelion leaves
Broadleaf plantain
Watercress
Kale (here and there)

Whenever jingle is outside she/he will eat clovers (even though I do restrict the amount it eats)

Around about twice a week I will sprinkle Nekton onto his food.
My vet has also given me a vitamin powder to mix in his soaks here and there.

Is there any other foods that could be recommended on a daily basis that offer a good calcium:phosphorus ratio? Just want to make sure he/she is getting the most out their diet

If you can get opuntia cactus pads, grape, mulberry, hibiscus leaves and flowers that would broaden your repertoire. Those are all great healthy staple for tortoises
