Is it ok to use lawn fertilizer on my vegetable garden?

Dear group members:

I do not recommend using lawn fertilizers as weekly feed, because
they have double the nitrogen and less than half the phosphorus and
potassium that vegetables need.

they are designed to make grass green, but not to grow healthy fruits
and vegetables.

Any mix - between 10-10-10 and 20-20-20 will do as a starting point.
And if you can find a 2-1-2 ratio that's even better.
