Wild rabbits Wild rabbits spend much of their time foraging in meadows and fields eating wild grasses, herbs, flowers, leaves, and twigs. They also consume some fruits, vegetables, and grains as they come across them, but these do not make up a large part of their diet. They get much of the water they need from the fresh leaves and grasses they eat. Rabbits mostly eat lettuce, carrots and vegetables. Rabbits eat grass because they don't have sharp teeth.
Pet rabbits Pet bunnies require a special diet high in fibre, moderate in proteins, low in fats, calcium, and sugar, and with the right mix of vitamins and nutrients. This diet basically mimics the diet of a wild rabbit. Refer to the question below for more information and links about a healthy rabbit diet.
The best way to encourage rabbit health and wellbeing is by providing unlimited access to hay and water. A common rabbit diet is also to offer fresh dark leafy greens, and high-quality pellets daily. Aside from leafy greens, fresh vegetables and fruits should be limited as treats because they're too high in starches, proteins, and/or sugars for rabbits to eat on a regular basis. Rabbits also need water, it keeps them going, and if they don't have any food or water they are most likely to die.
Rabbits should not eat any dairy, meat products or bi-products, grains, nuts, seeds, or processed "human" foods (cereals, crackers, cookies, etc). Avoid giving your rabbit any plants that have fertilizers on them, pesticides, or parasites left by other animals. If you aren't sure the plants are organic, wash them in a vegetable soap. (Dish soap is not a suitable alternative to vegetable soap; it will permeate the vegetable skin and you won't be able to completely remove it, and it isn't safe to consume.)
Rabbits are individuals, like humans, and they have individual responses to foods just like humans do. Some rabbits are more sensitive to some "gassy" foods than others, and they shouldn't have this foods at all. Gas can be life-threatening for a rabbit! Always observe your rabbit carefully and modify its diet according to individual responses and your vet's directions.

rabbits eat alot of things like pellets,grass,carrots,broccali,cabbage,some leaves,and a little bit of lettuece but not every day. rabbits also need water it keeps them going and if they don't have any food or water they are most likely to die.
Bunnies need a diet high in fibre to keep their digestive system going and to grind down their teeth. HAY is the biggest part of a rabbit's diet and the most important source of fibre (although many rabbits also like chewing on apple wood and willow twigs, and even plain cardboard, like the kind toilet roll inner tubes are made of).
In order to ensure your bunny is getting the right mix of vitamins and nutrients, you should also feed your rabbit some FRESH GREENS and high-quality PELLETS daily. Choose pellets and greens carefully: most pellets on the market are too high in protein and fat, and too low in fibre; and many plants are unhealthy for rabbits, even toxic.
Oh, and WATER, of course!
Healthy rabbits eating the above diet don't need vitamin pills or nutritional supplements; in fact, many such products can be unhealthy. An exception to this rule is digestive enzymes (such as in papaya enzyme tablets, or even fresh papaya or pineapple), which help keep a rabbit's delicate digestive system running smoothly. Either way, you should speak to your rabbit-savvy vet about your rabbit's needs before feeding it any supplements.
Rabbits have a sweet tooth and will enjoy the occasional treat. TREATS can consist of fresh fruit (like berries, peach, apple, papaya, pineapple, apple -- no seeds!), fresh carrot (a very sugary veggie), or whole oat groats. Treats should be limited to a couple of bites every couple of days or so. Grapes and banana are EXTRA sugary and should be extra restricted. Over-indulging in sweets can result in a variety of different health complications, even leading to death.

Like humans, rabbits must have a balanced diet. Rabbits should eat foods like fruits, vegetables, hay, pellets and grass. Rabbits like to eat things like dandelions, seeds, and spinach. Rabbits cannot eat most flowers, some lettuces, or cabbage. The most important food that a rabbit needs is hay. Pellets are also good for rabbits too because they have a mixture of alfalfa, hay, and legumes.
There are also lots of food that you should not feed to a rabbit. One of them surprisingly is lettuce. Lettuce contains lactucarium which causes diarrhea in a rabbit. Some other foods that rabbits shouldn't have are beans, cabbage, cauliflower, kale, parsnips, potatoes or potato peelings, rhubarb, spinach, swedes and tomatoes. They should never eat Sweet Clover which can cause a Bleeding Disease.
if a rabbit eats a lot of fresh food it will gain wait which will make the rabbit unhealthy and possibly get sick. Rabbits should not have a lot of fruits because to much sugar is bad for them. Their water needs to be really clean because if there is bacteria in the water the rabbits can get really sick and the infection will start growing around the rabbits ears.
