Won’t eat insects?? Help!

So my bearded dragon didn’t eat as much insects today, but is eating a lot of greens over insects! He’s still a baby, and I find this quite weird. He does enjoy his greens though and he eats a lot of it! Would this be okay? What would happen if he doesn’t get more insects than greens at his age??

He will be fine. Some times they just know what they need. Just offer line you're supposed to and let your baby figure out the rest.

Offer the insects first thing in the morning, then a second feed of insects with salad in evening if about 3 - 6 months old.

Wont get enough protein from salad and vegs, needs insect protein and insect fats to be healthy and develop properly.

Have you tried changing to a different feeder insect ?
…. this can result in better feeding .

The other option is to handfeed the young dragon.
