They should be fine :)

I researched this a while ago (if you dig through my thread posts you will find it) and they are fine for them to eat if they have not eaten any poison plants or anything.

thanks :) - they are in her garden - so I will see what all plants she has - if she has tomato's, I will pass on them - I know she does not use poison , she has little kids that go in there, and she is scared they will eat it too-

Could you ask her to send a picture so you can post it? Are they actually cut worms?

THANK YOU for your help - :)

Very welcome!

I think it is a cabbage looper indeed. They do not solely eat cabbage, they eat other things too.
