Sugar Glider Diet Recipes

Main Course

There are several approved sugar glider diets to choose from.  These are to be fed as the main course for a complete diet.

Click the links below for the recipes to most widely accepted sugar glider diets:

  • Sweet Sugar Gliders - Sugar Gliders EatingHPW – High Protein Wombaroo – This is what we feed our gliders and they love it! Not only that, but it is the easiest to make and one batch lasts about 2 ½ months for two gliders. The up-front expense is a little high (ordering the Wombaroo powder and bee pollen) but it lasts several batches, so overall it is a really cheap diet to make. We are planning to stick with this diet and have even created the SSG Complete HPW Diet, which uses the HPW Diet and expands to show which fruits and vegetables work well with it. 
  • Judie’s BML – This is Judie Hausmann’s version of Bourbon’s Modified Leadbeater’s diet. She has modified it to make it taste less bitter. She and many other glider owners have had great success with this diet. We fed it to our gliders for a while before switching to HPW. Our gliders really liked it, but we felt the HPW would more closely mimic their sugar glider diet in the wild and was much easier to make (due to the fewer # of ingredients).
  • Original BML – Bourbon’s Modified Leadbeater’s – We have not personally tried this diet with our gliders, but it is widely approved. The difference from this and Judie's BML is the type of juice and the amount of the Herpivite vitamin supplement.
  • Priscilla Price’s Diet (aka Sugar Glider Exotic Diet) – We have not personally used this diet, but many breeders are using it and Priscilla has been breeding gliders for years. She has successfully used this diet with over 1,000 gliders.
  • Suncoast Diet – We have not personally tried this diet, but Suncoast is having great success with it and is a large and reputable breeder.
  • Leadbeater's Formula - This diet was developed by the Taronga Zoo as part of an extensive feeding schedule for their sugar gliders.  We have not personally tried this diet but it is our understanding that it was meant to only be fed as part of the diet. This diet may be the most difficult to replicate as a pet owner.  This is why you see modified versions of Leadbeater's such as BML and Judie's BML.

Fruits & Veggies

These recipes can be used in place of the fresh or frozen fruit & vegetable portion of the diet.
