Default Food Brands - Help?

Hi everyone!
I've been looking into getting a hedgie for about two years and this website has been a huge help! I'm going to be getting a hedgehog in a few months but I can't seem to find a good food for one. I was thinking about Blue Wilderness Rocky Mountain Recipe ( https://bluebuffalo.com/en-ca/all-na...e-adult-trout/ ) but I'm not sure if its a good choice or not.
Can someone please tell me if it is? And if it isn't can you give me something better?
Thanks!

(if I happened to post this in the wrong place or something, I'm so sorry)

The fat is a bit on the high side but if you find your hedgehog is starting to become overweight you can always mix in a lower fat food. The ingredients look good.

Thanks so much! Would I also add fruits / veggies in that or no?

Essentially this is what you should be looking at on the back of the bag of food I have found out the my hedgies food isn't the best for her and someone recommended Fromm Family gold Mature cat food, you should look into that one. They only need about 2 tbs of it a day so it lasts quite a long time

Ideal numbers
Protein: 30% - 33%
Fat: 10% - 13%
Fiber: 3% - 8%

General Numbers
Protein: 28% - 35%
Fat: 8% - 15%+ (dependent on the hedgehog)
Fiber: 3% - 8%

(got this info from PugPibbleHedgie on youtube)
