Lorikeet eat cockatial seed?

I had a pair of Rainbow Lorikeets and a pair of Cockateels, but sadly I lost both my male Rainbow Lorikeet and my female Cockateel, when they both got out and flew away when the young Grand-Children decided to open their cages to change their water.
I tried putting my male Cockateel in with my female Rainbow Lorikeet, just to be company for each other and they get on well together and do not fight. My only question is can my Cockateel continue to eat the same food that I have been buying and feeding my Rainbow Lorikeet as I have been told not to put the seed in that I was feeding my Cockateel as it can kill my Rainbow Lorikeet.
