I've read that spinach is not good, but I don't know about it in small quantities, as in getting him eating, but not as a "staple". Romaine evidently has no real nutritional value and is mostly water (which in Wilson's case, may not be a bad thing) and chard I've read is a strict NO-NO.
I just scrolled down and saw your follow-up post and I'm glad you've been in touch with Wendy. As for how to get him eating greens, will he eat them out of your hand? If so, maybe you can feed him a bit closer to his dish everyday, until he associates the dish with his food. If it's cause he's a bit dehydrated, getting him hydrated may be all it takes. When Rocky stopped eating about 6 months ago, he started eating once I'd got enough babyfood/pedialyte down him that he started feeling better. Either that, or he got so sick of me prying his mouth open, he probably figured he better eat or I'll never stop.
Good luck. Tell Wilson....

Eat, drink, and be merry! (or else!)
