Chinchillas should be fed about 1-2 tablespoons of pelleted chinchilla food a day to supply all their essential vitamins and minerals. However the bulk of their diet should consist of good quality forage from hay and dried grass, as a Chinchilla's digestive system requires hay and grass to be able to function properly. You should always make sure your chinchillas have hay and water available. Chinchillas can be fed a small amount of dried fruit and root vegetables as a treat and to add variety to their diet, there are also special Chinchilla Treats available to buy. However you should avoid feeding your chinchilla too many nuts and seeds as these are high in fat and can lead to obesity and ill health.
