Whatever you feed the bugs, you can feed her.
strawberries, bell pepers, mustard greens, collard greens. banana.

Thank you for the help
Ive read somewhere that chameleons can suffer from over supplementation with vitamin dusts, does this apply to feeding them too much fruit rich in sepific minerals/vitamins or can I feed him as much as he can eat?

just feed fruit like sa treat. clair really likes grapes and tangarines so she only gets a little bit randomly. i think that its the sugar in fruits you need to watch out for.

Im not sure. but i would assume if she becomes a glutton over something maybe.
but to be honest, i doubt she will keep eating and eating and eating something.
though its best to mix up what you feed them, just in case.
so if one day you feed her a sliver of strawberry, the next try a mustard green.

but dont eb concerend if she doesnt eat it.
my guy refueses to eat anything but his umbrella plant. and his bugs.

While some things may be good to fee your chameleon they are not a good staple. You have to monitor the amounts that you allow them to have. Same with your gut loading.
Here is excellent list that will give you detailed information on nutrional value as well as how much they can have
