What do parrots eat?

what do parrots eatParrots are seed-eating birds, and essentially herbivorous, with many species also frugivorous (fruit-eating). Most eat fruits, and the nectar and pollen of flowering trees.
They have strong curved beaks ideal for cracking hard shells of seeds and nuts.

Some varieties are also insectivorous, feeding on small insects to help supplement their protein intake.
