Guinea pigs must have vitamin C. Most commercial food has some in it, but you can give them sections of fresh orange once in a while, too. Most of them like it.

supply plenty of hay, they love to eat it and hide in it

They need an unlimited supply of Timothy hay (not alfalfa!). You should also be giving them a vitamin C supplment, as it can be tricky to make sure that the pigs are getting the appropriate amount of vitamin C with veggies.
