Can Guinea Pigs Eat Chard?

We're honestly a little confused as to what type of chard we tried. The label on the chard itself said "green chard," but the receipt from the grocery store said "Swiss chard." Wikipedia has an entry for Chard, which says that "Swiss chard" is another common name for it. However, they also have a picture of "red chard," which has red stalks. The kind we ate has green stalks, and the entry has no mention of "green chard." We're confused piggies when it comes to chard classification, but we know what we like!
What type of chard is this?
It's yummy chard!
Yum! On a side note, look at my pretty manicure from SEAVS. 
Swiss chard can be fed to us almost daily; if we ate "green chard" and it's a separate type of chard, we can probably eat that almost daily, too. It's probably a good idea to cut up the stalks into small pieces to prevent choking, just like our humans did.

We ate this stuff up really quickly and looked up at the humans with pleading eyes for more. Chard gets 5/5 stars!
