Roly-polies are detritivores who consume a wide variety of organic material. They primarily consume dead plants or animals, but they will occasionally eat live plants. In captivity, they will thrive on a diet of raw fruit and vegetable slices. Potatoes, carrots, apples and pears are good choices.

Looks like they can eat anything - like grass and leaves. But if you have fresh fruit and vegetables that would be better like carrots, apple skins, lettuce and so forth.
