Tomatoes are safe and healthy for budgies. Your budgies can get vitamin C, potassium, folate, and dopamine from tomatoes, which also reduce stress. Tomatoes also contain lycopene, an antioxidant that reduces heart disease risk, and Lutein and Zeaxanthin, which fight cancer. Budgies can eat tomatoes, but only a few slices a week for a balanced diet.
The tomato’s flesh, skin, and seeds are safe for budgies to eat because they are small and soft. Birds can eat green tomatoes, but ripe red tomatoes are too acidic for pets. For the same reason, budgies should avoid tomato plant stems and leaves.
To avoid nightshade poisoning, choose fully ripened tomatoes for your budgies. To make it easier for your budgie to eat, slice sun-dried tomatoes into small pieces. You can also serve tomatoes raw or cooked with oil and other toppings.
