Medical - Zoology / dog's diet
English term or phrase: Will not eat
One of my dogs always waits for the leftover piece of tomato when we slice one, but the rest of them will not eat tomato. A couple of my dogs like a variety of vegetables, while most will not eat some of them.

Uno dei miei cani aspetta sempre l'avanzo del pezzo di pomodoro quando ne affettiamo uno, ma il resto di loro NON MANGERA' pomodoro.
Un paio dei miei cani ama una varietà di verdure, mentre la maggior parte NON NE MANGIANO
NESSUNA

Sapete aiutarmi a tradurre molto meglio questa frase! ? Please?

Grazie in anticipo

Reference: Refuse to eat

Reference information:
The meaning of the English is very particular. It isn't a simple future meaning. These dogs absolutely refuse to eat tomato. Forse "non vogliono mangiare"
