Default Best Diet For A Robo Pair?

Hi! So my sister has recently got 2 boy robos and was wonder what the best diet/mix is to have. We don't understand all this % guideline and adding up. I found out recently they are not prone to diabetes so would feeding them something like the Bunny Dwarf hamster dream expert or the Burgess dwarf hamster mix make a difference? Or is there a special mix for robos? Could you just name the foods to buy? Advice is much appreciated thanks.

I would stick to either of those two mixes, the Burgess can get a bit boring for them so I think the Bunny mix is probably better overall, even though they're not prone to diabetes they still need a good dwarf specific mix like that.
You don't have to be so cautious with treats so the occasional bit of fruit is ok & the same with sweeter veg which you need to restrict more in diabetes prone species but the basic needs for protein, fat & fibre & a mix suitable for tiny mouths is the same really.

My robo eats the Pets At Home muesli as a staple as I prefer my hamsters on the same diet, but I add tiny extras in for him too which go down very well. Linseed, millet, canary seed, chia seeds etc. All brought in tiny packs from RatRations.
