You should not feed them bread, or anything with processed sugars and flour. It is not a healthy diet for them, even though they will eat it.

They savor nuts and sunflower seeds, but will also take fruit, especially grapes, apple slices and berries, and they love corn. At least the ones in my yard do. and don't forget, just like birds, they appreciate a source of clean, fresh water.What foods do Squirrels and chipmunks like to eat?
chipmunks like to eat seeds or peanuts.

squirrels love sunflower seeds as well as many types of nuts and will quickly eat up any seeds that you put on the ground. squirrel has a varied diet with mast crops (acorns, walnuts, beechnuts, etc.) being a very important component. Other food items include seeds, fruits, insects, fungi, and occasional bird eggs and bird nestlings. At the end of the summer, gray squirrels will store seeds and nuts to feed on when food is scarce during the winter months.
