Weaning African Grey

Hi, my african grey is 10-11 weeks old (according to breeder, I think he might be a week older after seeing pictures of baby greys and the fact that he can fly perfectly since last week).

Anyways, right now we are still giving him three feeds a day, he won't eat much on his own. He has fruit blend pellets always and fresh fruits and veggies offered to him everyday, and sometimes he does try to eat/play with them but I don't think that he is actually eating anything on his own.

Does anyone have any experience weaning african greys? What are good weaning foods? And what is a good diet for them to always have in the cage (I know a pelleted diet is better, but can I put dried fruit and nuts)? Any suggestions with weaning would be helpful. Thanks.
