    Lena, Cockatoos can be very picky eaters. She needs a
    variety of foods and you are right to offer fruits and
    veggies (no avocado). Also cooked pasta and beans are good.
    A bird formulated pellet is a good main diet, Harrisons,
    Roudybush, Zupreem, there are many brands. When you take her
    in for her wing trim would be a great time to ask your vet
    about getting her to try different foods and a good diet.
    One hint, if you are eating and enjoying a food, your bird
    will be very tempted to try it :).
