Try using a favored food (I use hard boiled egg) and mix in small pieces of what you want them to try. Most birds are slow to try new food items.  When I do try a different food I give the birds small amounts to cut down on waste. Giving the new food and waiting awhile to give their normal food might induce them to try something unfamiliar.
