Question Question about Cockatiel food

When we got Priscilla and Elvis, we were told to give them ZuPreem Natural food which has added vitamins and minerals. It's just small tan pellets and nothing else. They don't seem to eat it very much. They always end up having droppings in it and either throw or kick it out.

When I had Priscilla (my first cockatiel) and Honey (second cockatiel), we fed them Premium Cockatiel Food. It was a mixture of sunflower seeds, small seeds, and other things. They did very well with it and we fed it to them for years and I don't remember ever having problems.

Would it be a better choice to give them Premium because of the variety, or is the ZuPreem okay? Or is there another type of food that'd be better for them?
