30% insect’s ad 70% salad is the recommended diet for birdies that are more than a year old. For juvenile bearded dragons, its normal diet should comprise 30% salad and 70% of insects.
Make sure that the sizes you feed them with should be smaller than the space between the young bearded dragon’s eyes. Young birdies that are older than 3 months should be fed at least 3 to 5 times a day.
As most of us know, reptiles like bearded dragons will just eat any kind of moving insects that they can find. But if you still prefer to gut load them, wood food like TEB trees are good.
They are large soft-bodied caterpillars and are quite similar to silkworms, but these worms have a bright green color. The green bright color can be a great stimulant of food response for those fussy eaters and reptiles who are fasting for a cause.
This is also not advised to serve as a staple food of the reptile since it can cause obesity and a poor growth rate. Meal worms should ONLY be fed to adult bearded dragons because the skin of the larvae is too hard for young and baby birdies.
Many people think that meal worms and super worms for bearded dragons are the same things, but that is not the case. They are just as tasty as other feeding worms but also with a lower ratio of calcium content (1:25).
Because the worms have a low-fat content, they can serve as staple food for your little reptile’s diet. Plus, these worms don’t need to be gut loaded and can be readily eaten by your pet as soon as you take them home.
Silk worms are economical, convenient and carry the needed nutrition for your pet. Silkworms are also the best choice of a staple food for your bearded dragon, they have low-fat content and top nutritional value.
They have the high source and perfect balance of vitamins B1, B2, B3, Sodium, magnesium, iron, and calcium. Juvenile bearded dragon diet can comprise this too as far as it’s no longer than the space between its eyes.
Wax worms also have a soft body and can grow for up to 1 inch long. I forgot to mention earlier that worms with high-fat contents are a favorite of bearded dragons, but even if they are said to be one of the best worm feeders they can only be given as treats because it can be bad for the Pomona’s health if fed constantly.
It contains high quality of ingredients like fat, protein, vitamins, minerals, and carbohydrates. Since worms like these are too long, some pet owners cut it into half just so the reptile won’t be a problem in consuming it.
Insects like cockroaches, locusts, crickets, and roaches are also good feeders for them. As earlier stated in the best worms for bearded dragons article, birdies can also eat a bunch of different kinds of fruits.
Apricot Apples Blueberries Blackberries Cherries Chaste Cranberries Dates Figs Grapefruit Grapes Guava Mangos Melon Nectarine Papayas Peaches Pears Pineapples Plum Prunes Raisins Strawberries Kiwi Watermelon You can also feed your pet with a couple of types of plants also, but on occasions.
It’s honestly not a great idea to feed your bearded dragon with insects that you just caught outside or from your backyard. Those worms or insects might probably have parasites in them and have been exposed to pesticides or insecticides, which can be bad for your pet’s health.
Avocados are harmful to them and can be deadly when eaten, not only for your bearded dragon but also for birds. Glowing insects may look beautiful and tasty for your pets, but they do not so avoid feeding it to them.
Spinach may be healthy but because calcium easily sticks onto it, it can hard for the bearded dragon to ingest it. Wax moths, crickets, meal worms, and super worms are good food source.

I did give IZ two of the red worms but don't think I will continue them. Mom of 2 dogs, a Warner Zoey and mix Jada. 2 cats, Sadie and Lexis and my Birdie Izzy.

You should use caution NOT to feed fireflies as they are toxic to Bearded Dragons. Vegetables that you can offer included greens (turnip, kale, romaine, dandelion, endive, escarole, mustard, and collard), green beans, squash, peas, sweet potato, chicory, watercress, red bell pepper, and cilantro.
