I really wouldn't worry about it too much. Young beardies will always prefer live food to veg & as they get older & bigger, the bugs stay the same size. Therefore the bugs don't fill their bellies up as much as they used to so the beardies tend to eat more veg. They also work out veg will always be in the same place so they don't have to hunt or chase it down.
The golden rule with beardies is feed them as much live as they can eat for about 15 min each day, then leave them with veg & berries. Don't forget that dandelion is very good both leaves & flowers but young beardies will always eat more live than veg & change as they get older/bigger.
