8 week ring neck parakeet wont eat cereal

Hi, When i got my baby ring neck, it was around 6 weeks old and it ate its cereal fine. Just recently i notice that it doesn't want to eat the cereal.

It is active and perching and wanting to fly. But it just doesn't want to eat the cereal. I have tried giving it apple and seeds but it doesn't pick up the food and eat unless i put it in its mouth.

Please help.
