How often should I feed veggies?

I know for baby beardies it’s 80% live food and 20% veggies but can someone tell me how often is that? I’ve been giving a little mix of mustard greens, squash and sweet peppers every morning. He normally doesn’t eat much of it. Am I giving him enough or too much veggies?

Really no thing as too much veggies unless its all he was eating. You are doing good, offer daily even if he is only eating a little.
I usually offer greens first when the dragon is the hungriest.

How soon should I give him the veggies after he wakes? I usually wait about 90 mins.

That's a good amount of time. Wait for him to bask a bit and warm up in the morning before breakfast.
