 My plated lizard dosent want to eat

he has become almost lazy like lol. Im not sure if thats normal cuz he is my first lizard and all. he has become less shy now :). but here is my question when i try 2 feed him instead of attackin it like he normally does he closes his eyes and goes 2 sleep ... no joke . i feed him meal worms 5 every other day. i usally use a long tweezer or place them randomly so he can hunt but last 3 days he doesnt want 2 he does this every once in awhile too . is this normal.. how often do they sleep 4? the temp in his cage is around 85-90 and at nite i turn them off and sometimes leave the uv one on or the heat lamp on .... ooohh and how do u get him 2 eat veggies ive tryed strawberrys he licks them same as melons no luck .... any help or advise is welcome :)

I used nice juicy black crickets for mine, to many mealworms can cause health issues with your pet, they need a varied diet with insects/bugs dusted every meal & vit d twice a week & make sure their really well gut loaded, even locusts will go down nicely.
