Default hedge not eating

So just recently I switched her food to a new hedgehog food I found at petsmart, she's been eating cat food from when I first got her, and I've changed the brands up a bit here and there but when I switched to the hedgehog food, she seems to have stopped eating quite so much, Im not sure if its because she doesn't like the food or maybe its got enough nutrients to supply her for a small amounts. She also hasn't been pooping as much and seems to be grumpier than usual. Is their something wrong with the food or is she just not used to this new food.

Here's the food I got too

Unfortunately, hedgehog specific dry diets have never been made to a quality needed to accurately supply their needs. This brand is no exception. While it’s actually one of the “better” hedgehog foods I’ve seen, the ingredient list is still poor to say the least. The best option is to find a limited ingredient cat food with high quality ingredients such as whole meats, specific meat meals, and added nutrients.
If you are switching the foods too quick, this can also cause them to stop eating because their stomachs are upset from the sudden change. When switching foods, it’s best to gradually add new and take away old over a couple weeks period until you are giving all new.
