Beardie won't eat

Beardie name(s)
Smaug
Hello! I have a new bearded dragon male, 1 year old, called smaug and has 305 grams, and I can't get him to eat his greens. His basking spot has 33°C, humidity equal to 32 %, I feed him meal worms once every 4 days, and he eats plants from my garden when I get him outside. I tried his old diet from the shop I got him, I tried feeders in it, I tried with bee pollen, and still just if I put it in it's mouth when he's gazing. His salad is made with romaine lettuce, carrot cut in long and thin pieces, bell pepper cut in cubes, and calcium+multivitamims+d3, and bee pollen

No lettuce try collards, kale, mustard and/or dandelion greens. You may wanna try spritzing the greens with apple juice. That worked for me or even changing the brands of bee pollen. I brought a new brand and he hasn’t really be eating it compared to the first brand I tried. You may also want to add fruit occasionally to the salad. Mines don’t like things that aren’t flavored and so I use strawberry banana calcium powder

I agree with Rango. Also at 1 year old he should still be growing some and will need more protein. Mealworms are hard for them to digest, maybe try dubias, superworms, hornworms, silkworms, black soldier fly larva (bsfl if you see it abbreviated, also called calciworms). Don't over feed but feed him once daily untill he stops growing.

I’d feed him mustard greens, collard greens, parsley, bell peppers, carrots, butternut squash, spaghetti squash, acorn squash, blackberries, raspberries, dandelion greens, Dubia roaches, super worms, hornworms. In my opinion, he should be fed a healthy salad every day and 5-7 appropriate-sized feeders every 3-4 days.
