Veggies & Fruit Just like you, your bird appreciates variety – new textures, tastes, and colors – in her daily diet. Providing treat variety can be as easy as visiting your refrigerator for the fresh fruits and veggies you enjoy, too!

Keep fresh foods in their natural state when possible and serve them creatively to maximize entertainment value. The following foods add fun, healthy variety:

VALUABLE VEGETABLES
Broccoli (head and leaves) Carrot (roots and tops) Cauliflower
Cooked sweet or red potatoes Corn Cucumber
Green beans Parsley Peppers
Radishes Red beets (peeled) Romaine or green/red leaf lettuce
Sugar snap or snow peas Tomato Turnips
FABULOUS FRUITS
Apples (without seeds) Apricots Banana
Berries Cherries Cranberries
Grapefruit Grapes Honeydew
Kiwi Mango Oranges
Papaya Peaches Pears
Pineapple Star Fruit Tangerines
Treat Time No-Nos
While sharing "people food" can be fun, improper choices can cause allergies, obesity, intestinal distress, and other problems.
ALWAYS AVOID THESE FOODS
Apple seeds Fruit pits High-fat processed "junk" food
Avocado Chocolate Alcohol
Caffine Carbonated beverages Persimmons
Table salt Onions Mushrooms
