Default Is this a good budgie food?

Hi everyone. Currently I am feeding my budgie a mix seed diet. My local grocery store has this food as well: Vitakraft Budgie Food 500G.

I'm not sure If I can post a link to the site so I'll just type the ingredients here:

Prevents deficiency syndromes, supports metabolism and keeps thyroid gland healthy

Supports your bird's vitality and encourages feather growth

Complete pet food for budgerigar.

Feeding as in their natural habitat

In their original Australian habitat, parakeets have a varied food supply with all the vital elements. Premium Menũ is gently prepared from selected sun ripened seeds such as red, yellow and white millet, oat grain and protein rich polished seeds and honey.

Hi there,
I have moved your thread to the Diet and Nutrition section, where it's most appropriate.

Besides the fresh seeds I get at the local feed store, on occasion I also offer the Vitakraft brand of seed mix. The one I use is the premium menu vitality plus (sugar free recipe).
Up until now, I have never had a problem with the Vitakraft brand, even when it comes to their treat seed sticks and millet spray.

Besides the seed mix, it would be good to start your budgie on fresh foods.
Romaine lettuce is a good starter veggie to introduce and so are sprouted seeds.
The stickies on this section have all the information and tips on how to improve your budgie's diet.

You can start by checking the information on these links:

RIP sweet Tito (Summer 2008 - January 17th 2013).
You are missed and never will be forgotten.
