We also like to add in butterworms, which are very low in fat and high in calcium. They are easy to keep in the fridge and most leos will eat them, but not all.
I have a huge sunglow and all he would eat were crickets. Since I hate hassling with crickets I tried to get him on other feeders, to no avail...until I tried butterworms. He loves them....and he is picky. Most leos just need a few butterworms per day, so while they are a bit pricey, you don't use as many.

Also be sure you keep a small dish of a mineral vitamin mixture for your leos to lap up as they need it. We use a combo mixture of Osteo Form, Rep Cal, and Herptivite.
