Sugar Glider Diet

Because they are omnivores, they love a variety of foods including meat. Some foods that are Sugar Gliders, generally as delicious, are as follows, but are NOT limited to:

Apples, bananas, berries, bread, cantaloupe, carrots, cherries, corn, dates, dried fruits, eggs, figs, grapes, honey, honey, insects, salads (Romaine or leaves alone, Head or ice boil can cause diarrhea ), food worms, meat (low fat turkey, chicken, chicken, chicken, chicken, chicken, chicken, nuts (of various kinds, unsalted and raw)), peanut butter, pear, pineapple, plum, fruit juice pure, raisins, strawberries, sunflower seeds, sweet potatoes.

I do not recommend broccoli cauliflower, or cabbage because of its gas-producing nature, no one likes gas, not even Sugar Gliders.

One of the things that might work well is to have a few different containers and cut different fruits and vegetables each one until they are full. Then all you have to do every night is open the container you want to eat and pull out some of the pieces you want to eat. I would like to add here that I find it cruel to not feed on some types of insects (at least) throughout the week. In the wild, they will eat fruits and animals and they cannot be denied that they are in captivity. It doesn't have to be done every day, but it should always be done.

Sugar Gliders are able to gain weight more easily in arrests due to the lack of movement they experience in the wild. Babies born to overweight parents are sometimes born blind or have poor vision due to fat deposits in their eyes. This can be corrected by a controlled diet and weight loss on a small scale. One of the things that helps cause this condition is to feed on many nuts, which are high in protein and fat. To lose weight, you need to lose their fat and protein and try to increase their exercise. It may take several weeks for them to lose weight.

Don't be disappointed when trying to feed your pet. They are weird about their food because they can accept it for a few days and then not take the same thing for a week and then eat it the following week. The point is that each of them has their own personality and taste, and it will take some time to figure out what they like. You may find it easier to go to your local grocery store and buy a bag of frozen vegetables and use them with fresh fruit. You also need to make sure that your Sugar Glider has fresh water every day. Keep in mind that tap water may not be better because it is usually treated with chemicals to purify water.

Some suggestions I will make about the type of bait bowl are that you at least have a bowl that won't tip or spill easily. Most Sugar Gliders will tend to rise above the bowl and around the plate. If the bowl is not heavy enough to hold its weight, it will end and the food will spill out either causing a mess or creating a situation where the food is under age and the Sugar Glider is inedible. Another suggestion that has worked well for me is to have a type of food holder hanging on the side of the cage. I did this because as Sugar Glider climbs around the cage, they will come out and drop down the cage that hits everything in it, including the food bowl. My feeder is located at the top of the cage with enough space for the Sugar Glider to sit, on the edge, without feeling comfortable while eating. This makes them unable to climb food (most of the time) and reduces the likelihood that they will land on their food.

Examples of Glider formulas that work well and are as follows:

Adult formula:


  • 4-8 ounces Applesauce

  • 1/2 cup Gerber dried cereals (for protein)

  • 1/4 cup rice

  • 1/4 cup oats

  • 1/4 cup honey

  • 4 ounces of plain fat yogurt

  • 4 ounces of isomil or be sure to add

  • Apple juice or juice to make soup

Stir in the blender until it forms a liquid and put in the ice cube tray and freeze and eat 1-2 times a week. Pull out one for the AM feed and one for the PM feed. Remove after 5 hours. It is still a good idea to offer some kind of solid food for them as it will help keep their teeth and gums clean and healthy.

Some people recommend eating once a day at dusk, while others will eat twice a day. The method you choose should depend on your Sugar Glider. Are they still hungry in the morning? Eat them a little in the morning or give them some time in the evening. If I provide too much food to them, they tend to create chaos in their cage, so I eat less of each meal, but are fed twice a day. Try mixing some of the Sugar Glider ingredients you enjoy and good for them and combining them and freezing them. You can get some cheap ice cube trays and use them to freeze.
