This is true. Mealworms are higher in fat than crickets. But for a baby, this is fine. Babies can have the extra fat. Adults can have them too, just not as often.

Every hedgehog is different in how much fat they can have in their diet. For babies I did 6-8 a day, for adults 2-4 mealworms.

Both are good options
