Hi Sid

Welcome to Paw Talk. It is very important that a Sugar Glider recieves a well balanced diet. Along with fruits and veg they do need protien and also extra vitamins.

There is a lot of information on diets here:http://www.sugarglider.net/links/pag...ion/index.html

I personally feed the BML diet http://www.sugargliderinfo.com/Nutri.../leadbeat.html and find it to be excellent.

Whichever diet you do choose to follow please make sure it is a proven one.

I see you are in the UK and I don't know what availability is like for all the ingredients over there as a lot of the diets are US based. I do know that there are a few UK owners on this board though http://www.sugarglider.net/ubbthread....php?Cat=0&C=3 so they also maybe able to help you.

Here a list of glider safe foods:

Fruits
Papaya, apples, figs, pears, kumquats, raspberries, cherries (no pits, they're toxic), blackberries, seedless grapes, plums persimmons, mangos, watermelon, strawberries, cranberries, apricots, cantaloupe, honeydew melons, casaba melons, kiwi, peaches and pomegranates. (Take out pits and seeds (don't worry about the smaller seeds i.e. strawberries, kiwi, etc.)

Vegetables
Peas, green beans, carrots, sweet potatoes, collard greens, mustard greens, spinach, squash, celery, watercress, broccoli, cauliflower, pumpkin, Brussel sprouts, asparagus, yams, corn.

(Limit corn, broccoli, and cauliflower)

We usually buy a bag of mixed frozen vegetables.

Proteins
Boiled or grilled chicken, eggs, mealworms, crickets, pinky mice

Other treats
Yogurt, Apple Sauce, Baby Foods (Fruit, Veggie, Chicken)

I also feed my sugarbutts the BML and so far they love it! I usually keep bags of frozen fruits and veggies that I had chopped in a processor. Following the portions suggested I usually alternate fruit one night and veggie the other. I must have about 30 bags of frozen bits in my freezer to choose from. Oh, and they are mealworm addicts too, lol.
