    2 days ago I fed my turkey 50 superworms.

    Yesterday I fed her 200 mealworms

    Today I fed her 75 large crickets.

    She's addicted but is it bad for turkey's health. thanks.

    Protein snacks low in fat are fine, just make sure she is eating an appropriate amount of food each day and not just the buggy snacks ;)
    You didn't say how old she is, so I don't know if the amount is appropriate or not, but it seems excessive for any age, maybe 20-30 mealworms a day would be fine.
    You can also make her a little toy to earn the mealworms/crickets, like a water bottle with two or three holes in it, when it is rolled over, one treat can fall out at a time.
