What is a proper sugar glider diet?

I was given a sugar glider as a pet. What do they eat?

You should provide a fresh protein source, such as mealworms or crickets. Secondly, fresh fruit and vegetables should be made available. Additionally, there are pellets that you should make available to your glider throughout the day. Diet is very important to their health, and can be the cause of disease.

You need to feed your sugar glider a balanced diet with proteins and fresh fruit. An easy way to get their fruits in. Also they love grasshoppers.

Sugar gliders will mainly eat insects if they are available because they are high in protein. When insects are not available they tend to eat sap from eucalyptus plants. Pet stores offer commercial feed but isn't necessarily the healthiest choice.

Sugar gliders need a very complex varied diet, including BML (look it up), mealworms/crickets, fresh fruits, fresh vegetables, nuts, vitamins/minerals, yogurt, egg, and treats.
