I don't think that purina is one of the better foods. The kitten food is too high in protien and in fat. 30% protien and less than 10% fat I think are the numbers. Chicken (or other meat) meal should be the FIRST ingredient. If it's a lamb based food it will say lamb meal or de-boned lamb, if it's beef it will say beef meal etc. If corn, wheat, are in the first five or so ingredients then it is not a good food. If there are by-products or any chemicals in the food anywhere in the ingredient list stay away from it. There is a list of chemicals to watch out for in reapers food list in the nutrition section.

I think purina fails most of the "good food questions" but you should double check for yourself. Also when feeding a mix it is important to use different brands not just different types of food from the same brand. All formulas in the same brand will have similar ingredients so it is not enough of a variety for your hedgehog to just be feeding purina.

That being said you are doing everything else right, supplimenting the dry food with everything you listed is a great way to add variety, good job!
