Default Tidymix

Hello! Does anyone feed their budgies tidymix?
I have tried introducing it to mine, but they roll it around their mouth then spit it out.
Some of the things seem quite hard/tough for them, but the mix is specifically designed for budgies.
I have tried taking out some of the individual lentils and putting them on their treat platform. But again, they will pick it up, give it a go but then drop it.
It is such a lovely looking mix with lots of goodness so I was hoping they would take to it.
Thanks!
P.s. I am in the UK so not sure if this is available abroad.

Get the old food you used to feed them and add a bit of the new mix in with it. After you add more and more they will just be eating the new one. Try this out!

For members in the U.K. Haiths Seed Mix is an excellent choice.
Have you tried it with your budgies?

Thanks, I have seen that a few people recommend Haiths, but all of the seed mixes I see always seem to be made up of millet, which we are always being told is bad for our birds!
My birds have been on trill with a variety of fresh veg and herbs and egg when they need it, and millet as hand fed treat (a bribe!). I have just swapped the trill for Living World Premium by Hagen which they enjoy but still leave a lot of the non-seed bits.
I had wanted to move them from trill to something more balanced and less fatty and better quality.
I have tried pellets but they won't even acknowledge that it is food. With Tidymix they seem to understand that it's edible but they can't work out how to eat it!
If I mix anything in with their old seed Barbara will fling most of it on the floor as she searches through for seed.

I'll keep perservering!
