reliable food source?

I know hermit crabs eat all sorts of things but how do you guys consistently have food sources, do you cook them something every night? I have an assortment of freeze dried foods but i was told it didnt have enough nutrients

I have organic muesli as a background food source, but I will put in a bit of whatever we are cooking for the day too.

Yes, that's how I vary what I give them each day.

sorry if im seeming slow. How do you know it has enough nutrients. Have you done research into it or trust that it does. I ask because the people ive talked to have really stressed nutrients and such and its kinda stressed me out yk
