Hi all,

I anticipating getting my gliders next week and just had a question I hope someone can help answer. My plan was to utilize the TPG diet, but I was for some clarification on the fruits and vegetables. The recipe calls for 2 cups or 16 ounces of fruit, and 2 cups or 16 ounces of veggies. If I'm using kale for example, 2 cups full is not the equivalent of 16 ounces of kale. Which unit of measurement should I be using?

2-4 different veggies mixed, totaling 2 cups.

Fresh or Frozen Vegetables

At least 2-4 different types

Not Canned

Either finely chop or use a food processor.

Vegetables – fresh or frozen - not canned. When using frozen vegetables, get regular mixes (no sauces or Asian flavoring). Favorites include: sweet potatoes, kale, collards, green beans, , beets, peas, lima beans, carrots, jicama, bok choy, squash, red bell pepper and snow peas. Small amounts of corn are ok but be very careful. Corn is high in phosphorus and it is fattening and of course sugar gliders love corn so they will always eat that first. Small amounts of broccoli and cauliflower are ok, but overdoing produces excess gas in the sugar glider and that makes them very grumpy. DO NOT FEED GARLIC, LEEKS OR ONIONS OF ANY KIND.


Above is the instructions from the PetGlider website concerning the veggies.

Note: Many do NOT recommend using a food processor for their fruits or veggies. Gliders take what they need from their foods and discard what they don't. With the exception of their staple, their fruits and veggies should be the size they can easily hold in their hands.

Many people successfully use the TGP feeding plan. Personally I don't like one where you sprinkle the vitamins because you can never be sure who gets vitamins and who may not dunno

I wouldn't finely chop the fruits and veggies. I would weigh out the fruits and vegetables.

I also woudln't use the TPG diet because of the vitamins. You are to sprinkle vitamins on, the first glider to the food dish is going to get to many vitamins and the last one to the food dish isn't going to get enough.

Since 1 cup is 8 oz, 2 cups would be 16 oz. You state the 2 full cups is not the equivalent of 16 oz... I don't follow how you've come to that conclusion.
