Nutritional Benefits for your Feathered Companion:
KELP – Kelp is particularly rich in the trace element iodine and tocopherol (Vitamin E) which improves feather conditioning, molting, and helps birds that experience iodine deficiency. A great source of Magnesium, Calcium, Phosphorus, Iron, Potassium, 12 vitamins (including A, B1, B2, C, D and E ), 21 amino acids and over 60 minerals and trace elements.
HULLED MILLET – Hulled Millet is rich in phosphorus, iron, calcium, riboflavin, the nutritional value of cooked millet (90 calories) is only a step below wheat on the protein ladder. It is also higher in the amino acid lysine than rice, corn, or oats.
CAYENNE PEPPER – Cayenne is native to tropical America where many of our feathered friends hail from. Cayenne is known for its blood cleansing properties, fending off disease and to also equalize blood circulation. Don’t worry, Cayenne wont “burn” birds the same way it does to us humans. Cayenne strengthens the heart action but at the same time it does not increase blood pressure. It is known to have antibacterial properties and to prevent heart attacks and stroke.
CARROTS – Carrots are rich in vitamins and a favorite among many pet birds. Containing high levels of beta-carotene, carrots support optimal eye health, which is important for birds of all species.

Bird Food Cooking Directions (15 min):
Stovetop: In a medium saucepan, bring 2-1/4 cups (530ml) of water and 1 cup (235ml) Viva La Veggies to a boil. Cover with tight-fitting lid, reduce heat to low and simmer for 15 minutes. Remove from heat and let sit, covered, for 5 minutes. Cool completely before serving.
Note: As altitude increases and atmospheric pressure decreases, the boiling point of water decreases. To compensate for the lower boiling point of water, the cooking time must be increased.
