Default AW POOP!

I'm a new hedgie mom, so please go easy on me, I know I make mistakes.
Gizmo had some diarrhea the other day, which scared me really badly, so I moved him back to another tub that was easier to clean.
It got better, so I moved him back.
Then he had some green poop. It scared me, but not too much because I had given him a blueberry (peeled) for the first time and I think it upset his tummy.
Then everything got better!
Then he had a green poop ._.
There were a few, but they were green with mostly brown.
I clean his tub everyday cuz he poops everywhere, so there's a lot of moving for him.
He hasn't had mealworms for a while either because it's a long drive and I just haven't had the time, but I'm getting them ASAP.
Could the lack of worms be the problem?

well that wouldnt be causing the poops but you def need to ween him onto a better diet. commercial hedgehog food isn't very good, it is better to use premium brand cat food. how bad is the poop by the way? like a little mushy or is it watery

wait you explained the poop context. is the poop back to normal now? when they get stressed or eat something different that can happen with their poop. if it went away do not worry about it really.

Last night he had a green poop...
But just right now he pooped normally.
I'm just afraid that later today it'll be green again and I won't know the cause.

If there has been absolutely nothing really new in his diet, in his schedule and in his environment, I personally would take him to the vet to rule out intestinal issues. Even if you just take in a fresh sample of poop for them to take a look at and leave him at home.

How long have you had him?
