Hi,
You can feed small amount daily for a baby slider but need to gradually reduce every other day. Turtles always begs for food but it is very unhealthy to eat too much regularly.

Kale is very nutritious but cannot feed too much of it. Keep it in small quantities.
Do try some other greens too, like some fresh basil leaves, romaine lettuce(dark green part only), mustard green, soft collard green(not stem) etc.

I recommend this YouTube video by The turtle girl for new turtle keepers like you!
Her video is quite thorough and good information.
