There are a couple of things I've noticed with your set up. You said you're using newspaper as bedding? Newspaper isn't a good bedding because it becomes very cold when wet and can cause your hedgehog to become chilled. Some ink is also not good for them and can cause health issues and quill staining.

Mazuri is a horrible food. The ingredients are not good and it's very very hard to chew for them. Most people feed a high quality low fat cat food which is much healthier for hedgehogs than commercial hedgehog food.

Personally I would switch to cat food. If you look at the ingredients you'll see there are a lot of fillers and not much for nutritious ingredients. Try biting on a piece and see how hard it is. Ask yourself if you would want to eat a food that hard and with all those fillers. Not to mention that it's been shown over and over again that cat food is healthier for them.
