Each day offer a handful of Brambles food per hedgehog in a shallow dish. You can supplement your pet hedgehog's diet with insects, boiled eggs, fruit and vegetables. Their favourite insects are mealworms and crickets. They can also eat beetles, waxworms, millipedes, grasshoppers, hornworms and maggots.
Mealworms and crickets have an extremely poor calcium/phosphorous ratio which can cause life threatening problems such as Metabolic Bone Disease if eaten as staple diet. It is recommended to dust mealworms and other feeder insects with calcium and vitamin D3 powder before giving them to your hedgehog. Remember that insects are hedgies' junk food, so they good as treats, but should'nt make most of their diet in captivity and should'nt compromise their staple diet.
Always ensure there is a supply of fresh water, particularly when feeding dry food and during warm weather. It may take a little while for the hedgehogs to get used to a different food but do persevere as this is normal with all animals.
Also suitable for badgers and foxes.
