Default Picky with food?

Hello it has been almost a year since I've had my girls. I have read and recieved advice about a proper diet and introducing them to fruits and veggies. However, i have only been a little successful. They i have introduced them to all sorts of food that they could eat and they only seem to eat anything white or brown in color (egg, banana, sometimes apple, oats etc.) They just refuse to eat greens and other veggies. I am also wondering just how healthy oats are for them (plain, natural oats they absolutely love them) and how much i should feed them. Thanks!

Don't give up on offering a variety of vegetables to your budgies. It takes a very long time for many budgies to accept and try new foods.
There are various ways to present foods to your birds so please look at the stickies in the Diet and Nutrition section of the forum and keep trying.
Most good seed mixes already contain some oats so keep that in mind when feeding.

Have you tried sprouting seeds for your birds?
