how to get your bearded dragon to eat greens

Hi all, i need some advice on how to get my bearded dragon to eat more greens; she currently barely eats any and she started looking skinny. I feed her worms most of the time but i know i cant just feed her worms all the time.

Can you post a few pics of her to show her size, also her set up ? What type of greens have you used ? Some people put BSFL or other worms on the greens but if your dragon is looking thin she needs more protein as well. Can you get crickets, locusts or dubia ? Those are good staple feeders. My dragons all started eating dragons as babies, sometimes if you just drop a few pieces near them it attracts their attention. Some people put the greens on a white paper plate so they stand out more.

Adding something to the greens to get them attracted is a good idea, whether it's worms or a small amount of fruit or something. I agree with @AHBD, if she is looking thin she probably needs more protein too. I also found offering the greens a couple of hours before the protein helped encourage mine to eat his.

This is Atlas, he's my 3 year male leatherback. i don't know whether to be worried as he has no femoral pores what so ever, not even small ones! i always thought they would come with age but he is getting a bit older now and i'm starting to worry. here are some photos of his lack of pores. if someone could let me know if this is healthy that would be greatly appreciated!!
