Serve your budgie and other birds this cool and refreshing treat. It offers a balance of vitamins, calcium and protein. The fruits and greens included in this recipe are parakeet and parrot friendly.

• 1/2 cup cooked lentils and legumes
• 1/2 cup cooked whole-wheat pasta
• 1/4 cup chopped kale and spinach

1) Prepare your lentil, legumes and whole-wheat pasta beforehand. You want these ingredients to be cool before you add them to the fruit salad.

2) Wash all of the fruits and greens.

3) Chop the cherries and grapes into half slices. Chop the mango into pieces that your parakeet will be able to grasp with its foot.
