Nah I wouldn't do that for a young dragon. They often prefer bugs to salads because they need the protein to support growth spurts. It's pretty normal. Just make salads available for her so they are familiar when she reaches full size and transitions over to mainly vegetarian diet. You can feed the leftover salads to the bugs. I tend to reserve syringe feeding for dragons who are ill and don't do it often.
