Bearded dragons can go into brummation at this time of year. This can last upto two months. If he/she is starting to brummate then weigh your beardy and check the weight every two weeks. So long as they don't start loosing some serious weight it's ok.

Also a bearded dragon can go without food for two weeks no problems. In the wild they don't always get to find food. Lighting and temperatures are extremely important. So long as he/she is eating something that's good. You could also try getting the poop tested for parasites. They can also effect their appetite.

He is definitely too young for brumation --- keep offering the different insects -- I find it odd that hes eating more veggies at this time and not insects -- what are you dusting the insects w/ ?

per gram its 400mg calcium and vitamins A C E D3, K3 and group B. Phosphorus is a 0.50%
The vitamins need to contain beta carotene (a precursor to vitamin A), not vitamin A itself. Feeding a vitamin that contains vitamin A can lead to vitamin toxicity. Signs of toxicity are lethargy, weight loss, and refusing to eat. Switch to a vitamin using beta carotene as soon as you can.
