I've never had any problem at all feeding mine meal worms, although I
would imagine morio/super worms could possibly cause problems if alot
where consumed in one sitting. Regarding supplements I add some to
their mealworm bowl and dip the crickets/roaches in the powder, it is worth
noting that too much supplementation can cause as much harm as not enough.

I forgot to mention my berbers also love snails, I breed my own giant african
land snails and it's amazing watching them crack through the shells.
