I recently started feeding Candy Otte's Blended diet and my girls just love it! It's kind of a cross between BML and HPW. It seems to be a tiny bit sweeter (due to the juice and yogurt, has a great amount of protein, yogurt for good digestion and immune system health and the Ca:P ratio is awesome too!

http://gliderkids.com/BLENDED-GLIDER-DIET.html


I have been feeding this since the last week in September and I see the gliders eating better, specially Jadzia.

I attribute the 5 grams that Jadzia has gained in the last two weeks to this diet. She just wasn't eating well on the HPW even though that is what she was getting at the breeder.

All of my gliders are cleaning up their food on a regular basis, not the hit and miss I had with BML or HPW. This diet is balanced, it has less honey, still has the bee pollen.

Candy has spent a lot of time on her diet and the diet ratio calculators she has on her site.

Kylie, if you'd like to try the HPW but the fruit and veggies seem "scary"...

the fruit and veggie relish recipes on the S.P.I.N. site (especially those you can link to on IowaMisty's site) are quick and easy to make and feed and take the guess work out of it ENTIRELY.

I personally never thought it was hard- I mean, how hard is buying a bag of frozen veggies and scooping it into a food dish every night, right? But I realized my gliders were gettting great nutrition but poor OPTIONS that way- now, they get great nutrition and better OPTIONS for their fruits and veggies- a little variety goes a long way in keeping htem HAPPY as well as HEALTHY!!

me too. The work she put into the excel sheet is phenomenal!
I believe im going to try it but the only thing is I cant figure out what the other nutrients ratios should be? I understand the ca;ph but what about fat, sugar protein vitamins? according to her excel sheet using the human grade calcium vs the rept cal is a huge improvement in the ca:ph

I included the values for fat, sugar, protein and fiber as a way to compare the recognized diets to each other first. Then when working on the foods and amounts for the Blended diet I had something in addition to Calcium and Phosphorus to compare the diets.

I hope those of you trying the Blended diet will take a moment to share it with your vet to see if they have any comments or in put.

My vet felt like it was a balanced diet when I discussed it with her and showed her the comparisons to BML and HPW.

I emailed my vet links to the diet and your spreadsheets. She is very interested in it.
