I recently got a little bag of mixed freeze dried insects for my mouse and was wondering if I could give my tiel some too.
It contains locusts, mealworms + some shimps(not insects but still there's not many anyway) - they aren't coated in any nutritional stuff, just plain.
Would they be good to feed if he can be convinced to eat them?

A small amount should be OK. Too much protein isn't good for birds so you wouldn't want to feed him a lot. Cockatiels do eat some insects in the wild apparently but we don't know how big a part of their diet it is.
