Default homemade hamster food

[i am looking for a new food to feed my robo. she was being fed on Burgess but since now it is only pellets i am looking to change her diet. when she was on Burgess she was also having some other seeds and protein added in. i realize now that i did not do enough research into this diet.

i am looking into feeding her a base mix - which will be 2 tspn - of harry hamster since i have heard it is great for dwarfs as well as syrians. even so, i want to add more seeds and some mealworms since it includes no animal protein. i need to look more into a way of doing this but i was wondering if you have any advice?

i am completely new to this so i will either be feeding her just the harry hamster until i have done enough research to be able to transition her onto a homemade diet with harry hamster or keep her on her current diet with harry hamster instead of Burgess depending on what it think is best for now.

The Dwarfhamster Junior by Rodipet is very good and my Robo loves it.

I found the Harry Hamster too large and chunky for a tiny Robo.

Since I have run out of Burgess I need a food that I can buy in shops so that I can get a hold of it straight away. My only option is Harry hamster. If the pieces are too big for her then I will swap her onto a mix that I can order for her but, depending on how she goes with it I might keep her on Harry hamster

Harry hamster is good, but dwarfs need more seed mixes.
I add mealworms to it and a small seed mix from holland and barrats.
