I offer him seeds and fresh and frozen veggies but he never likes them enough to keep eating them \_(ツ)_/ I wasn't able to get to the store to pick up the yogurt until yesterday and I was so excited to try the baby food with him so that ended up being our test for the night. We're gonna try the yogurt today and I'll update yall on how it goes!
Wean him off the zupreem fruit blend slowly because it's still better than nothing...It's kind of like the "Lucky Charms" vs "Grape Nuts" lol (only more nutritious to an extent). They aren't the awful, they just aren't the best, but I don't think I would consider them harmful (sure, some added sugar and color...but if your bird will eat it and won't eat the others, you shouldn't cut him off-- try to transition slowly).

Pure Fun is worse (in my opinion) because it has so much fruit etc in it. Just my opinion though.
