Just to avoid misunderstanding – I couldn’t edit it in time, but for my second paragraph please read:

….. as things stand, anyone can pretty much put a food together and call it hedgehog food, so generally it’s the meaty type ones which are mentioned in feeding information. Probably similar to cat/dog food which may be cheaper. …..

In other words, those meaty hedgehog foods are not actually recommended, as theoretically, anyone could put them together and call them hedgehog food as well. So, some may be better than others. Which is probably why many people say stick to cat/dog food.

Hope that makes sense.
