My 8 week old beardie won't touch crickets, he will eat maybe 10 size 1 locuts in one go. But he goes nuts (arm waves, Head bobs, runs about like a loon, etc) for small dubia roaches.
Green wise, i feed mine spring greens, rocket & butternut squash daily and every couple of days i throw in something extra like carrot, bell pepper, cress etc etc.
His greens bowl is normally pretty much emptied in about 20 mins and then about 1 hour later he gets his first lot of roaches.
The link scotty posted is a brilliant source of information food wise.
As above, my dragons love locusts and not crickets, but i have now ordered some dubias from livefoods.co and am gona see if they like them, if they do i will start a colony of my own
( currently reserching)

All good however apples only as a treat and cucumber must be peeled. I dont feed mine cucumber as it has poor nutriotional value but has a high water content, so good if yur dragon is dehydrated
