|Bostons do best on the better quality foods.
If you want to feed food with a grain in it, oats and barley work best.
Stay away from soy, beet pulp, corn and any food that you need to feed a lot of such as pedigree or Eukanuba. If you don't you'll have issues with gassiness and stomach upset.
Mine have also done well on blue buffalo wilderness, inova evo, natures variety instinct. There were a few other grain free foods I tried with success.
An easy way to do raw is to feed natures variety raw. I recommend it. The Bostons do great on it and don't eat much.
If you are feeding mostly kibble, you can do raw by just adding meat to the diet. one time a week feed a chicken wing or two for a meal. The next raw meal can be a piece of chuck roast. Adding a half a chicken liver or a small piece of calves liver to one of the meals is good. Throw in a small piece of beef kidney or chicken kidney if you can find it(I find these in the backs of chickens). This should be balanced enough for a mostly kibble fed dog.
The amount of meat to feed is a about the same in volume than the amount you feed of a grain free kibble (for a Boston terrier).
If you want to totally feed raw, Be VERY careful about feeding any bone other than chicken necks, backs or wings to a Boston. You can find out more about raw in the raw forum but remember my warning about bone for this breed.
