I am no expert but having read lots of posts on here and having contact with my local carer it is now thought that mealworms are a no-no when it comes to hedgehogs. They have no nutrition and can actually harm the hedgehogs causing brittle bones. Hedgehog food or good quality cat/kitten food is a much better source of supplementary feeding. Also fresh water is important.
Good luck with the hogs
