Safe Fruits & Vegetables

Sugar Gliders in the wild are opportunistic omnivores. They eat primarily vegetables, nectar from tree saps, insects, and some fruits. As their primary care taker, it is important that you feed your gliders a well-balanced diet consisting of all the nutrients they need! It's always good to rotate your fruits & veggies with each batch to make sure and give them a variety of vitamins. 

A diet too high in phosphorous will lead to intestinal problems and calcium deficiency. Low calcium levels will cause your glider to get very sick, eventually having partial or total paralysis, and inevitably an early death. Always be sure to sprinkle The Pet Glider's Multi-Vitamin with Calcium before serving your gliders their regular meal!

Below is a list of safe fruits and vegetables that you may feed your sugar gliders. The ones highlighted are the foods that we feed our sugar gliders at TPG. Always feed fresh or frozen, never canned!
