I use a similiar mix to this but I also add fresh fruit like Mango and banana in it, just watch the citrus stuff. As mike pointed out once before, you should probably add the vitamins right before you feed, rather than freezing it. THey have a tendency to break down faster than the calcium.

Now to add to this debate:
I currently feed my cresties and aurics crix along with the babyfood mix. I have heard that there are some who feed a babyfood only diet, I'm not sure that I really agree with it but I do think it is a matter of personal preference. The only problem with it is that if you are feeding a babyfood only diet and you decide to sell the geckos or offspring of the geckos that are being raised like that MAKE SURE YOU TELL EVERY CUSTOMER. I have a feeling this was why I lost my first auric. I wasn't told till much later that the guy feeds a mostly babyfood diet. The pair that I have now are being kept the same as the first and the same as the cresties and all are thriving.
