There's nothing wrong with feeding him three times a day. It's thought that smaller meals can help avoid the possibility of bloat, although there isn't much concrete information out there about the specific causes of bloat.

With the apples, just be careful not to give him the seeds. Potatoes are okay, carrots are fine. The ones you don't want to give him are raw onions and grapes/raisins. There's a sticky thread about the dangers of raisins that you might want to read.

Yup its all good I put potatos in my veggie purea I put in their meals everyday. I give my dogs two small meals (one in the morning one in the afternoon) and a larger meal in the afternoon. A few of the dogs here really like apples peeled and sliced and melon.

Onion and garlic poisoning Top
Onions and garlic are other dangerous food ingredients that cause sickness in dogs, cats and also livestock. Onions and garlic contain the toxic ingredient thiosulphate. Onions are more of a danger.

Pets affected by onion toxicity will develop haemolytic anaemia, where the petís red blood cells burst while circulating in its body.

At first, pets affected by onion poisoning show gastroenteritis with vomiting and diarrhoea. They will show no interest in food and will be dull and weak. The red pigment from the burst blood cells appears in an affected animalís urine and it becomes breathless. The breathlessness occurs because the red blood cells that carry oxygen through the body are reduced in number.

The poisoning occurs a few days after the pet has eaten the onion. All forms of onion can be a problem including dehydrated onions, raw onions, cooked onions and table scraps containing cooked onions and/or garlic. Left over pizza, Chinese dishes and commercial baby food containing onion, sometimes fed as a supplement to young pets, can cause illness.

Onion poisoning can occur with a single ingestion of large quantities or with repeated meals containing small amounts of onion. A single meal of 600 to 800 grams of raw onion can be dangerous whereas a ten-kilogram dog, fed 150 grams of onion for several days, is also likely to develop anaemia. The condition improves once the dog is prevented from eating any further onion

While garlic also contains the toxic ingredient thiosulphate, it seems that garlic is less toxic and large amounts would need to be eaten to cause illness.

This also includes caffienated beverages such as sodas, teas, and coffees.

Raw salmon

Car ANTIFREEZE is deadly! Dogs love the taste of antifreeze and only a small amount can kill them

Raisins and Grapes are dangerous and very toxic to dogs and can shut down their kidney's.. some dogs seem to tolerate smaller portions but beware!
