I’ve decided to post my recipe for food for pet sugar gliders. I developed the recipe when I was suspect of the artificially colored options, and worried that the little guys were not getting what they needed, nutritionally, from the commercial varieties available.
I supplement this easy to make, at-home version of glider food with fresh (non-chlorinated, non-chemical) water, and a variety of fresh fruits (organic varieties), and some seeds and nuts. Apparently they are doing well with it… and they seem to really enjoy it (they wipe it out!)…
Angela’s Sugar Glider Food Recipe:
3 boiled eggs (cage-free, organic variety) with shells
1/4-1/2 cup Garbanzo Bean Flour (available at grocery stores in natural foods aisle)
Organic Yogurt (Baby Organic Pear Variety)
1/4 cup pecan meal
Dash of organic apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup organic honey
Three large stems of raw broccoli
Teaspoon Vionate For Pets brand Mineral Powder
Tablespoon Rep-cal Phosphorous-Free Fine Calcium Powder with Vitamin D Supplement (ultra-fine powder)
Put all ingredients in a blender (including the whole eggs with shell) and blend until smooth. Pour the mixture into ice cube trays and freeze. Pop them out into a plastic zip lock baggie and feed gliders a fresh “cube” every day. This proportion is about perfect for our three gliders (there’s usually just a little left over). I started out thawing it first, but one day when I was in a rush, I put it in the cage still frozen and they loved it. Now they get it straight from the freezer in a shallow glass bowl. (NOTE: It will not hold it’s shape once thawed, so you can’t present it without a bowl.)
Hope your furry little guys will enjoy!
