Best Answer

Given the amazing range of things that a typically curious emu will peck from the ground, bread is probably one of the more healthy options for it. However, emus cannot live by bread alone. There must be variety in their diet, and they need access to small pebbles and stones, which they swallow to help grind up their food and aid the digestive process.
