Default Why is it important to mix 3 foods together?

I've read that you should mix 3 foods together, but I'm not sure why really.

But, I've decided to use:

Blue Buffalo Weight Control Adult Chicken & Brown Rice
Protein: 28%
Fat: 9%
Fiber: 8.5%
Moisture: 10%
First 5: Debonded Chicken, Chicken Meal, Oatmeal, Whole Ground Brown Rice, Whole Ground Barley

Innova Cat and Kitten Dry Cat and Kitten Food
Protein: 36%
Fat: 20%
Fiber: 2.5%
Moisture: 10%
First 5: Turkey, Chicken Meal, Chicken, Potatoes, Eggs

Chicken Soup for the Cat Lovers Soul Adult Cat Light
Protein: 32%
Fat: 9%
Fiber: 8%
Moisture: 10%
First 5: Chicken, Chicken Meal, Cracked Pearled Barley, Turkey Meal, Powdered Cellulose

Is this good?

Doesn't have to be 3, but a mix of foods is best because we really aren't 100% certain what hedgehogs need in their diet. Mixing foods covers more than if they are fed only one food.

I think for Innova you need reduced fat or senior because the protein is too high with the regular Innova.

Basil just loves the Blue Buffalo you picked. You'll have one happy hog!
