What should I feed my sugar glider daily?

The diet of sugar gliders should include a mix of fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, and insects.

The bulk of your pet’s diet should consist of fruit and vegetables. You should feed them fruit rather than vegetables because it’s easier for them to digest and doesn’t cause gas. You can also give them cooked beans or peas for protein but only do this about once per week. Sugar gliders need fresh fruits and vegetables—don’t feed them canned or frozen versions!

In addition to fruits and vegetables, you should give sugar-glider nuts like almonds or cashews. Seeds like sunflower seeds are also suitable for them. Insects are another essential part of the sugar glider diet—you can feed them crickets (without the legs) or mealworms (without the shells).

You don’t need to worry too much about what types of insects you choose to feed your sugar glider; as long as they’re not crawling with germs, they’ll be acceptable! It would help if you crushed the insects before providing them to make them easier for your pet to digest.

Sugar gliders should be given fruit to eat every day. They can also be given vegetables such as carrots or green beans—but they should only be provided once or twice weekly because they’re more fiber than other foods.

Crickets and mealworms are some of the sources of protein that gliders need. Gliders should not be fed more than one cricket per day or two mealworms per day if you want to keep them healthy.

In addition to being fed fruit and veggies every day (and sometimes protein), sugar gliders should get fresh water too!
