critter in my compost bin

I've been noticing that an animal (probably a rat) keeps getting into my compost bin and stealing the additions i add to it every day. Is there a way to detour him? Or should I just add non edible things?

Maybe some small wire mesh around the bin?

This has been happening since time immemorial. Exclude critters from the bin, else put food scraps in a bin in the ground.
