“But my parrot won’t eat anything healthy!”
I’ve heard this so many times when people are trying to get their parrots to start eating better. The biggest motivator is to be able eat with you. If you are eating the healthy foods, chances are your parrot will be more than happy to eat some of it too. (Remember, it always tastes better if it’s on your plate, instead of in their bowl.) Have a nice salad with them to encourage them to eat their veggies and greens, add fruit and nut pieces to make it even more enticing to them. Be creative with your meals to include healthy whole foods that you, your family, and your parrots will all be able to enjoy. Change the ingredients that you use each time you make something. This is just a guide to give you ideas.
Ingredients for this batch are kale, cucumber, red bell pepper, cilantro, mango, blueberries, strawberries, zucchini, yellow squash, red cabbage, pecan pieces, almond slivers and fresh squeezed lime.
Next up, mango salsa, oh yum!!!
Another favorite around here is fresh mango salsa. I make a special version of this salsa for the parrots when I make it for the family. Everyone really enjoys this one. Again, try different ingredients for it each time that you make it. This batch includes mango, strawberry, cucumber, red bell pepper, cilantro and fresh squeezed lime.
Hope that you and your birdies enjoy! 🙂
