Can i give my Conure a cockateil treat?

I have a year old green cheek conure and my mom picked him up some food for me on the way home. She also picked up a - KAYTEE Honey Treat, and on the bottom it says cockatiel... Now I know that Twitters food says for conures or cockatiels but the treat doesn’t say for both so before putting the treat in for him I wanted to know if it would be bad for him to eat a cockatiel treat and if I should return it...
Thanks so much for helping me out!
I really appreciate it
Lilly

Yes, a conure can have any treat designed for a cockatiel Just watch with the honey sticks - honey in large amounts isn't good for their tummies, they don't digest it very well. Sometimes, they will even ignore their normal food for the day and eat just the treat stick I would put it in for an hour or so then take it away
