Default Picky Eater

Hi guys

Milo is 8 weeks old and he is a verrrrrry picky eater! The breeder gave me a mix of 2 Spike's Hedgehog Delite foods because that's what she had him on and I bought a dry cat food before I got him. I mixed them together and noticed he could clearly tell which was which as the cat food would still be in his bowl. He is now warming up to it as the hedgie food is running low, but he won't eat anything else!

I've tried everything- fruits, veggies, chicken, sausage, ground beef, etc. He just sniffs it and walks away. I finally got him to eat his mealworms, but of coarse I'm not gonna give those to him regularly. Is there anything I can do to get him to eat other things? I want him to not only have diversity but maintain a healthy diet and weight.

Does anybody have any tips or tricks they know to help me? I also had to get him a smaller food dish since he was climbing into it to eat and pooping in there!
