A Healthy Staple Diet For Sugar Gliders | Preparing The SGS 2 Diet

Written recipe:Vegetables:
150g butternut squash
140g sweet potato
50g carrotsFruits:
70g papaya
- 20g melon
- 20g PersimmonProtein:
- 1 boiled, peeled egg (or 50g chicken breast, cooked in only water. The egg is in the original recipe, I simply like to offer different protein as well.)Also add:
- 1 Tablespoon (18g) linseed soaked in hot water/hot chicken broth
- 2 Teaspoons (10g) Wombaroo High Protein Supplement
- 1 Tablespoon (15g) natural, probiotic yoghurt
- 1/4 (1.25g) Teaspoon acacia gum
- 1 Teaspoon (5g) bee pollen
- 1 Tablespoon (20-25g) wheatgermOne batch makes around 30-40 cubes. I only have 2 trays, that is why I am only showing you 20 in this video.
This batch actually made 40 cubes in total. I serve mine 1 cube per glider per night. I take them out in the morning before the feeding and let them thaw in the fridge until the evening. Twice a week I add calcium to their mix.More information on the SGS2 diet:

As long as they go back to their normal feeding habit the next day or the day after that it’s ok. Sometimes they eat too many treats and are not so hungry anymore. Very often they are influenced by the moon phase and will sleep longer and eat less during the night.If you feel like your sugar glider might be sick and that is why it is not eating, please take it to a vet immediately. There is no magic recipe for healing a sick sugar glider.Read about other staple diets for sugar gliders:
