Announcement: We will be discontinuing this product on June 30. Please find a note from our president, Dr. Ted Lafeber III, below:
Cheddar Cheese Nutri-Berries were created as an excellent way to safely feed cheese to your beloved bird. And they have been very successful at putting smiles on many bird’s faces with a safe and very low level of cheese. Some veterinarians are concerned that consumers will believe that cheese products in general are OK to feed birds in whatever amount they want. This is a reasonable concern.
Because of the concern of consumers misinterpreting our cheese message, Lafeber Company is discontinuing Cheddar Cheese Nutri-Berries. If your bird loves them, we recommend that you stock up on them now before they are all gone. They will be discontinued around June 30, 2020.
Cheese up your parrot’s life with Cheddar Cheese Nutri-Berries! The snap and tang of aged [real] cheddar cheese delivers a new taste sensation to your parrot. Nutri-Berries combine your parrot’s favorite whole grains, 25% pellets, vitamins, minerals, and amino acids that promotes good health and beautiful feathers. Offer as a complete food or as a healthy snack!
Instead of all the seeds and grains being ground down into a pelleted form, the ingredients in Cheddar Cheese Nutri-Berries are left mostly whole to give your pet bird the flavors and textures pelleted diets lack. And, unlike vitamin- and mineral-fortified seed mixes that essentially lose their health benefits once the bird cracks open the seed, Nutri-Berries are made with hulled seeds and grains; each berrie is then coated with essential vitamins and minerals to ensure that your parrot receives balanced nutrition in each bite. We also use chelated minerals for better absorption, stabilized vitamins for better longevity, and we naturally preserve and flavor our foods.
Plus, Nutri-Berries offer twice the foraging as pellets. The round shape encourages holding, giving the benefit of foot exercise. It’s an exciting eating experience that other diets do not offer — it stimulates both the taste buds and the brain.
