Do Budgies Need Gravel?

A Question that a Budgie owner asked, could any readers please help.

My budgie is eating the soil from one of my plants and I am wondering if there is a gravel I could put down for him to eat (I assume he is trying to get grit for his gullet).

First question is what do you feed budgie? Is it only seed?
Possibly looking for calcium, cuttlefish is a good scource. It is also strongly recomended to feed pellets.

yes they can use gravel i use it all the time on the bottom of the cage they will eat it and it good for them to peck at. Gravel like to help them with there beaks and so it don't cave in on them, it like vitamins c for them.
