Feeding your flock healthier foods

The Holistic Parrot by Leslie Moran

As we begin laying the foundation for feeding our birds more nutritious foods, and helping you improve your food choices too, let’s define how we classify high-quality nutritious foods. The foods we feed our birds, and eat ourselves, fall into one of three categories, they are either highly processed, wholesome processed or whole foods.

These products use manufacturing methods to transform raw ingredients into neatly packaged commodities that often have a long shelf life, but lack any health supporting nutritional value. These highly processed foods also contain unhealthy ingredients that are high in poor quality carbohydrates (white flour, denatured enriched flours), unhealthy fats (hydrogenated oils) and processed white refined sugar. Artificial additives commonly include MSG (monosodium glutamate), synthetic flavours, chemical preservatives, fillers, or artificial sweeteners.
