Default What kind of Hedgehog/catfood do you use?

I'm wondering if I should change the food he's using, I'm currently using, Spike's Delite Hedgehog Premium-Diet. Also how many worms should I feed a 9 week old hedgehog?

I use chicken soup for the kitten lovers soul and I'm switching her to chicken soup for the cat lovers soul light. :3
Maybe 5? Depends on weight I'd say.

A vast majority of people here but not all will recommend shying away from Spike's Delight because of an incident where hard plant matter was found in multiple packages of food given at a 2010 Hedgehog Show and when confronted about it they company didn't seem to care.

In addition its not always the easiest food to get ahold of I know Hedgehog's by Vickie sells it and I refuse to support someone who promotes bad cages and information on hedgehogs and has very questionable breeding habits.

A lot of people do their own mix and freeze the food to help it last longer.

The breeder I bought my hedgehog from fed him this, and he seems to enjoy it, so I didn't switch him off.
