Hey there (Hi Luna!) :) I usually hate to give websites, but this one will answer all your questions. It is a really great resource. I adopted my Mini-Lops from this rescue group.

    i looked on the internet, and when you first bring your lionhead home, they might get diareah. since you already have yours home, if it has diareah,or is stressed, you should feed it oatmeal, which should help. their main diet should be Timothy Hay and a quality rabbit feed. the hay is especially important, as it helps prevent wool block and gettign overweight. do not put hay on the floor; the rabbit will get it stuck in their fur . i don't know how old your rabbit is, but DO NOT FEED YOUR BUNNY ANYTHING BUT PELLET FOOD AND HAY IF IT IS UNDER FOUR MONTHS OLD!!!!!!!

    when your bunny is fully grown, they love to eat dandelions, yarrow, lettuce in small amounts as snacks. Desserts incluse 1/2" slices of bananas, some raisins, or one slice of an apple. since lionheads are small, make sure that they're not overfed, or they'll get REALLY fat, and have lots of cavities!!!!!
    i hope that all this information helps!!! :)

    Carrots (small pieces, never the entire thing) are okay as an occasional treat, and bits of seedless apple. Those both have alot of sugar so are a better treat than food.

    Lettuces, broccoli, cabbage, brussels sprouts and the like can kill a bunny; they get horrible diarrhea and… yeah. Just stay away from those.

    She'll love fresh dandelion and clover, as well as squash, fresh peas, tomato (just the fruit, never leaves or stems)… just about anything you can eat. Mine love the occasional section of corncob to chew, too. Get your hands on a copy of Carla Emery's Guide to Country Living; there's a huge list in there of good and not good foods for your rabbit.
