My guy (fully grown) gets veg every day. Rocket or kale are staples with butternut squash or peppers occasionally. 2 or 3 times a week he gets his bug fix.
In theory a variety of insects is good. I personally aim to feed a mix of locusts, morio worms and more recently dubia roaches. In practise Reuben is turning his nose up at the dubias for now but will eat morios like they are going out of fashion.
I generally feed my locusts on dark leafy greens, and dubias will eat pretty much anything but I have them on a mixture of bug grub (jarred dry mix) and any moist veg I need using to keep them hydrated. When I finish the bug grub which I bought ages ago, I will replace it with dry dog biscuits as they apparently love em.
I'm not expert that's just what I do.
I also give wax worms as a treat but try not to give too many as they are fatty and a tad addictive for dragons.
