The fat is to high, you want it to be no more than around 12%.

Yes it is you could have it as part of a mix for a baby but by itself it's way to high. Babies only need a bit more fat. I always fed mine the same mix mom was getting but added about 25% kitten food to the mix.

Has anyone ever used this in addition to your other food?

Well if you look at the ingredients the first one is soyabean, not good. The first insect is mealworms which are the sixth ingredient, so not many in it. It has molasses, pretty much just sugar, not good. I also have a problem with them saying it's perfect for so many different animals. Sugar gliders and hedgehogs have very very different dietary requirements so there is no way one food can meet the requirements of both animals, never mind the other animals listed there.

In my opinion most, if not all, of the foods by exotic nutrition are garbage and not worth the money
