Mine eat the whole thing. Occasionally I will find a leftover white stem that no one wanted, but only if they have had a lot of it recently.

Mine will eat it all. If you have a bunny with sludge problems you may want to pass as it's higher in calcium than some other veggies.

Default Try to freeze the white part!

In opposition to the leaves, the core and stems can give gas to your rabbit. It really depends on your rabbit digestive system. Rabbits can normally eat bok choy stems and cores. If your rabbit has a sensitive digestive system it should be served in smaller amounts or only from time to time. An idea is to freeze it for later. Now, you are able to give the white part in smaller amounts to your rabbit.
