If your budgie won't take fruit or veggies even though you try and try to make it eat. DON'T WORRY!! Just keep reading.
My budgie, Cheerio would not eat carrots or any thing that I tried to give him. Them I discovered that he likes me to hang left over grape stems or lettuce in his cage. Then he just nibbled away at it! My other bird, Toodleoo likes broccoli in her dish. It's just a matter of what your bird pays more attention to. See if your bird likes hanging toys or ones that clip on the wall. Then serve the fruit and veggies according to that. Never give up. I heard of a lady who had to wait MONTHS before her bird would eat veggies. Patience is always rewarded
