What's Eating my Cabbage?

I'd be grateful if anyone could help. Is it just slugs (I do get a lot of them) or is there something else at play? My kale is affected too, but less so. Also, is there anything I can do to save them, or should I just bin them and grow something else?

Thank you!

    Cabbage flea beetle?  Have a look and see what sort of evidence you can find.  Bugs?  Feces?  Eggs?  Etc?

    Thanks. It was flea beetles. I had to bin the whole crop sadly.

    Thank you for coming back and telling us the outcome. ........Unfortunately not a good one  for you.
     A lot of people ask us questions and never give updates.

    My pleasure. I won't bother with cabbage again. A lot of things do grow well, so I'll stick to them!
