When you eat in a fancy restaurant, your food is “plated” – it’s the chef’s equivalent of painting a masterpiece in color, texture, smells and tastes on your plate.  Studies have shown that people enjoy their food much more when it’s visually appealing.

The same is true for parrots. What appeals to them is what will get eaten. So making your bird’s food look appealing is important. This can including using food that has differing textures, colors, shapes, larger pieces, and other variations to add diversity to the menu. Unusual items like edible flowers add beauty as well as a pop of color!

You can order edible blooms from The Chef’s Garden – along with many other amazing and unusual delicacies.
