I would suggest trying to add in veggies if possible. It provides both a variety for more "fun" and a good vitamin add in. Fresh veggies would be best and you can try adding them in many ways. Our budgies love pretty much any veggies, any size but some will be picky if they haven't had the before so you have to be creative. Try a leaf of Kale or collard greens spritzed with water and hung by a clip in the cage. Many birds will shower in the water and nibble at the greens. Try shredded veggies (carrot, peppers, greens etc). Try small pieces of veggies on a skewer. Some prefer cooked veggies which don't have quite as much vitamins but are still a good add in.

Most birds I would suggest switching to a good pellet blend but budgies are usually much more active and able to burn off the extra fat in a seed diet so if you can get some veggies added in then you should have a good healthy all around diet for your budgie.
