Ark Wildlife sell banana chips on their own for hedgehogs :\

‘I Love Hedgehogs’ food:
‘Our delicious blend includes: nuts, fruit, sunflower hearts and cereals, laced with sweet energy-rich honey and for good measure we’ve added dried insects, hedgehog’s natural protein preference’. The insects definitely include mealworms… and nuts/sunflower seeds are high in potassium too. Plus fruit which is bad for their teeth. And I cant imagine honey is wise? Its sugar after all.

Ark Wildlife:
‘sunflower hearts, peanut granules, pinhead oats, micronised flaked oats, dried mealworms, brewer’s yeast & honey’

I don’t know, its a minefield. I suppose it depends how much of the ‘bad’ stuff is in these mixes.
