Hello and a huge TB welcome to you:) Ok as far as getting them to eat something new it is trial and error and persistence.
Budgies are creatures of habit.
My guys love eating parsley, thyme, basil, sprouts, I place wet lettuce in the bottom of the cage, or hang it from the side with a clip. Carrot , corn apple, banana peppers or capsicums keep trying them.:budgie:

Many Thanks for your reply x. I did think it was as you say trial and error, I will persevere then and try some more variety, just one thing, can they eat the healthy dried fruit, nut and seed snacks that you buy for humans as i noticed he showed some interest when he saw me eating them...?
Thanks again Yve

Hi and :welcome: to Talk Budgies!

Take a look at the stickies at the top of the Diet and Nutrition section of the forum for good tips in introducing new foods to your little one. With regard to the "trail mix" of dried fruits, nuts and seeds -- you'd need to make sure it doesn't contain added salt, sugar, etc. ;)

To familiarize yourself with the forums, please take the time to read through all of the How To Guides, the FAQs and the stickies located at the top of each section of the forum.
You'll find most of your basic questions are answered after you've read through all of them.

I'm looking forward to hearing all about Riley and hopefully seeing some pictures :photo: soon!!
