Default Sonic needs more fruits and veggies

I took my hedgehog Sonic to the vet not very long ago and they said they would like to see more fruits and veggies in his diet because he wasn't really eating any. But he won't eat any fruits or veggies I've tried feeding them to him but he won't eat them. Does anyone know any ways I can get Sonic to eat some fruits or veggies.

Sometimes you just can't get a hedgie to eat anything but their kibble. What methods have you tried so far? Sometimes changing how you offer the food will make them give it a try. Sometimes it just takes multiple offerings. One thing I found that worked with my Lily was to use baby food, and mix together a meat baby food with the veggie ones. As long as there was a meat baby food present, she'd eat just about anything I gave her.
