Coloured food pellets for parrots?

A little update for my mouse Teemo! When I was restocking on some mousey supplies from the pet store, the lady gave me a free 'sample package' of nutriblend pellets (for parrots). She told me that the pet store mice love eating them as treats. She was right though, I put ~6 pellets into Teemo's food mix and he has always chosen to eat those ones first. Except now he is pooping rainbows and I was wondering if it is good for his health.

From the company website, these are the ingredients:
Whole grains - soybean, wheat and maize. Vitamins: A, B6, B12, C, D3 and E.
Minerals: calcium, copper, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, selenium, sodium & zinc.
Fruity flavours: apple, blueberry & raspberry.
Lysine, methionine, vegetable oils, and natural organic acids.

    Pooping rainbows - that's the first time I've ever seen those two words strung together!

    I guess if the colour is safe for parrots it's probably safe for mice too but I think I would just use them as occasional treats.

    I'm not sure I ever expected to hear about rainbow droppings lol
    I'm glad your mouse loves the treats so much :D
