Have you tried sweet potatoes yet? How about raw corn on the cob (mine go insane for that...lots of screaming "mine, mine!" and tug-o-war with the cobs. Leaf lettuce is good (never iceberg), broccoli and cauliflower if they like it (mine don't), green beans, lima beans, squash sometimes etc. Just remember that lab blocks are nutritionally complete for your ratties but we all love to supplement their diets. Watch the fruits, they need veggies more than fruits. Try low-fat live culture yogurt to help the gut flora, etc.
Avocado is good for putting weight on rats but its very fattening. Plus a lot of people put a bit of mayo in it to get them to eat it. Mine won't touch it alone. There's also melon, a little grape, and banana for fruits.
To the world you are only one person, to your rat you are the World
