Well, I've never had this problem with my golden gecko, but when my crested gecko came to me, he'd never eaten any meal replacement powders before and wasn't interested in them. I think the procedures that work on a crestie would work on a golden.

I've had success mixing up some MRP with the baby food, and then gradually lowering the ratio of baby food in the mixture. I started out mixing them half and half, and my gecko ate it eagerly - just as if it was pure baby food. Currently, he's eating the MRP with just a bit of baby food added for flavoring, and soon I'll cut it out entirely. It just takes a bit of patience.

As for getting them onto crickets, I'm not sure. I'm still pretty new to geckos myself! I'm sure others on here will have better advice.
