I agree with Fane81 about the romaine lettuce (never iceberg), the liberal amount of Timothy hay (instead of alfafa) and the small amount of carrots (as a treat, it's great! I knew a bunny who got diabetes from eating too many carrots...)
Rule of thumb is that green veggies are best and that the more variety of colour you can offer, the better for your bunny's diet: for example, brocoli, parsley, brussel sprouts... (green), with cauliflower (white) and beets (red) make a good colour trio! Obviously, buns love fruits, but since they are also very sweet, a small piece every day is generally enough: a piece of pear or a slice of apple per day is plenty. As for pellets, they are very high in protein and calories, so if your bunny is still growing, it's ok to give them, but when she's an adult and does not need so many calories, you should limit the quantity of pellets you give. If she gets plenty of greens and hay, your bunny won't really need much pellets once she's an adult.
I hope this helps!
