Plenty of good quality, gutloaded live food. Occasional wax worms :2thumb:

Our beardie is a little on the skinny side too- but I'm gradually building him up. Make sure you weigh him regually. I do ours every two weeks.

well how you said the BEST thing to feed it, the best thing would be locusts, but size depends on his age? how old is he?

Good-quality livefoods.

If it's underweight, it will be short on protein; that means that pumping it full of fat isn't a good idea, so stay away from waxworms / mealworms / pinkies, and restrict morios worms...
