Who uses the TPG diet? I've been using Critter Love Plus since February and my girls used to eat the staple a lot when they were little but now don't eat it as much. I like the diet and the fruits and veggie salads I've just been debating if I want to try TPG for a while. I think it's the part of me that wants to just try something new cause I love them so much and I want them to have more life experiences, lol. :-b Any pros n cons with it?

If they are not eating as much of the staple, it is because they do not need the protein.

I feed the Plus and there are days when I see that they haven't eaten or even touched their Plus.

I very seldom see them not eating their Plus if they have joeys or are younger gliders.

They eat what they need.

There are many people who use the TPG diet, however, there are just as many who do not because it calls for sprinkling the vitamins rather than having them mixed in with the staple.

Yes, you could stir the food after sprinkling, but it is not the same.

Yeah. That's what I was reading. If it's sprinkled on the staple on top what if one glider eats the top layer while another is on the wheel and they when the other glider go to eat, the sprinkle on the top is already consumed. I read someone say that that it shouldn't be mixed and frozen because that destroys the vitamins in the freezer. I don't think that's true because then well... CLP or anything that I eat from the freezer would be vitaminless. :-) Also in Jan 2017 the recipe changed and the fruit and veggie parts doubled in the recipe. That's a big change from the previous recipe. Sigh. So many things to worry about.
