Question What size should my CWD be able to eat pinkies?

Hi all
I am new to the forum and just looking for a little advice. My CWD has
A ravenous appetite, not sure on his age but he is around 15-16"
He eats a large lob worms that I half (although he will eat a full one)
Around 10-15 calci-worms, a couple of wax worms and around 5-7 meal worms daily. I have kept a CWD many yrs ago, so he is kept in correct conditions.
All his food is dusted with both calcium and vitamins, but I am concerned about the amount he is eating and can't remember when it's safe to feed day old pinkies (frozen) would appreciate any advice on CWD's just incase I am not fully up to date with their upkeep.

pinkies should be a treat food really if given at all.. alot dont see any benefits in feeding them whatsoever, but wax worms should also be treats and not daily!

Ok thanks, I will cut down the wax worms to a couple a week
Are the lob worms, calci-worms and mealworms substantial enough for him?
As he won't touch crickets, locusts or any Beatles.
