As you can see peaches contain a disproportionate calcium:phosphorus ratio, they are also quite acidic and have quite a lot of sugar in them.

Yes they can eat peaches but only on an occasional basis. Make sure pit is stripped away and that they are fed in moderation to them as they are very sweet and too much may upset their stomach.
