At what age will sawns be able to eat lettuce?

Hi, I'm in Hamilton, Ontario Canada and we have a pair of mute swans who live in a shallow part of the harbour. Mama had her babies a couple of weeks ago (7 of them!) And by all accounts they are doing well. I feed Mom and Dad lettuce (and routinely try to tell people feeding them bread to please bring lettuce next time as bread is a treat and too much can hurt them)

How long before the young ones can have lettuce -I don't want them to get into it if their tummies aren't ready for it yet. Mom and Dad stick very close so it's possible babies could try for it so I haven't given them anything since babies were hatched.
