Question New seed and/or pellets for tiel?

I am going to town tonight and I need some advice on what to get for my tiel. The only pet store in the closest town (that's still an hour away ) is Petco... My tiel currently only eats seed, I give her the option of fresh fruits and veggies everyday but she won't even look at it. I've noticed a lot of you guys feed your parrots pellets and I was told seed isn't very good for tiels. Should I get something different tonight that may be healthier for her to eat instead of the plain seed she has?

Have you read this thread? http://talkcockatiels.com/showthread.php?t=27479, its full of diet info. Pellets are certainly helpful but not absolutley necessary as long as your bird gets a variety of other foods( veggies etc) along with the seeds. There is also a link in that thread that leads to tips on how to get them to eat their veggies that might be helpful.
