The best way to keep your Kakariki diet interesting is to mix things up. Provide pellets or complete food for at least 60% of their diet and treats like dried and sprouted seeds, fruits, green vegetables and seeding grasses for the other 40%.
Full-Flavoured Pelleted Meals
Incorporate all of the necessary nutrients into your Kakariki’s diet every day.
You can get all 40 essential elements your Kakariki needs in their diet with Lafeber NutriBerries, which come in three flavours: Original, Tropical Fruit, and Sunny Orchard. Your Kakariki will be able to grasp them on their feet and enjoy them because of their small size.
There is a Pretty Bird Daily Select Small for those with tiny beaks. With this diet, there is very little waste.
Sprouting Seed By Soaking
As soon as you soak these seeds for a few days, you’ll have a sprouting grain full of vitamins and nutrients for your Kakariki.
For your Kakariki’s health, include green leafy vegetables like kale, rocket, and spinach in their diet. They’ll eat just about anything green. Sweet corn, carrots, and celery are a few of the many vegetables available.
To reduce waste and feeding costs, the Parakeet Diet comprises human-grade ingredients that are 99 percent edible.We love the Naturals Pick ‘n Fly collection of grasses and the magnesium and phosphorus-rich millet sprays.
Natural fruits are so tasty that it’s impossible to go wrong. A variety of dried fruits are available for your convenience, and they provide the same nutritional benefits.
Mango, Apple, Cranberry, Other Sweets and Snacks
Additional goodies for your Kakariki include the following, which have proven to be famous:
Jellies for Parrots, Palm Nut Fruit Extract Oil, Sesame Sticks
Fruit, Strawberry, Orange, and Kiwi flavours are all available in the treat sticks for smaller birds.
The following is an excellent piece of advice:
Foraging is a natural part of Kakariki’s behaviour. You may see them scratching their feet and spreading the food in their bowls. Some owners store dishes in larger containers to limit the mess. You may also explore goods like the Seed Corral or Parrot Food Mate.
Please be aware:
We recommend purchasing the smallest bag/pack you can afford to test out your Kakariki first. Introducing a portion of new food can take some time and patience.
A look at the many toys for Kakarikis and the most popular ones from each.
When it comes to chewable and reusable foraging toys, some come prefilled with food, while others require you to add rewards yourself.
These toys require them to chew and shred their way through the textures before they can find what they’re looking for. Cardboard and paper make the Shred & Spin and Unicorn Pinatas for your Kakariki.
Foraging toys like the Buffet Party Ball. Your Kakariki will learn to forage their food if you use the Scarlett Small and Foraging Fruit Racks.

Toys made of coconuts or cacti.
