Default Might this 'human' food also be OK for my budgies to eat?

I bought this mix for myself. Having looked at the packet and seemingly healthy ingredients, I'm thinking maybe this could also be good for my budgies. What do people think? Would it be OK for them, either in a separate feeder, or mixed in with their regular seeds? I'd appreciate any advice on this.

I've also attached a photo of the seed I give them which is sugar free and hopefully not too fattening...
Thanks.

Linseed and Flax Seed are two names for the same seed.
This is an oil seed with a higher fat and protein content.
It is very good to give to budgies when they are molting.

All the seeds listed on the package are safe for budgies.
I can't see if there are preservatives in the mix or not.

I'd feed them as a special treat rather than as an everyday food.

It doesn't mention any preservatives in the ingredients, and just says the things that are listed in the name. I'll take your advice though, and just use as occasional treat!
