Have your little suggies decided to be picky this week? Do you have some gliders that have just gotten fed up with the same old thing? Here are some recipes to add some healthy pizzazz to any glider diet!

(1) Cheerio Chains -- Abrashea
Using 100 pound test fishing line, attach a bell at the bottom and string Cheerios, Honey Nut Cheerios and Multi Grain Cheerios together. Tie to the cage--they love it!! You will hear their enjoyment! You can also make hoops and swings! Keep in mind; you will have to remake them every few days!

(2) Glider Grandpa's Shredded Wheat Pancakes

* Crushed, plain shredded wheat
* Eggs
Mix together and scramble like a pancake.


(3) L'Omelette de Fruits de Poulet

* Cooked shredded chicken
* Eggs, beaten well
* Mixed vegetables
* Apple, chopped
Make omelet, and top with melons, grapes, pineapples and a sprinkling of The Pet Glider Complete multivitamin. Variation: Turkey, sweet potato and apple with sugar snap peas, red bell pepper & peaches. Delicious!

(4) Helwiggle's Mealie Salad

* 2 oz torn salad greens, thoroughly washed
* 2-3 dried papaya pieces
* 8 mealworms
* Pinch of Gliderade
Toss and serve! Serves two gliders.

(5) Pina Colada Smoothie Mix

* Frozen mixed fruit
* Container Pina Colada flavored yogurt
* 1/4 tsp Karo syrup
* Apple or orange juice to blend
Blend together and serve! Delicious!

(6) Glider Birthday Cake

* Pancake mix, prepared with applesauce instead of oil
* Sunmaid Dried Fruit Bits
* Fluker's Freeze Dried Crickets
Add enough fruit and crickets to make the batter full, but still stick together. I halve the smallest recipe, and there was a lot eftover. Put them in tiny cake cups and then bake at 350 until firm and springy! Yum!

(7) Berry Smoothie Mix

* 1 1/4 cup Frozen Mixed Berries
* 1/2 can water
* Gerber or Heinz Rice Cereal
* 11.5 oz. Can Libby's Kerns Nectar With Calcium Added, Any Flavor
In blender or food processor, blend frozen berries with nectar and water. While blending, add rice cereal until ingredients have the consistency of a malt. May be frozen.

(8) Free-For-All Fruit Smoothie Mix

* 1 1/4 cup frozen fruits
* 3/4 cup water
* 1 1/2 cups apple juice
* Gerber or Heinz Baby Rice Cereal
In blender or food processor, blend frozen berries with juice and water. While blending, add rice cereal until ingredients have the consistency of a malt. May be frozen.

(9) Super Charged Egg Smoothie

* 1 Hard Boiled Egg, shell removed
* 1/4 cup Special K Cereal
* 1/4 cup apple juice or Libby's Kerns Nectar With Calcium Added
In blender or food processor, blend all ingredients well. Serve immediately.

(10) Homemade Glider Nutri-Nectar

* Frozen fruit, any variety
* Water
* 1/2 tablespoon Dannon non-fat yogurt
In blender or food processor, blend all ingredients to a thin, liquid consistency.

(11) Chicken Apple Mango Peach Crunch

* 1 sm apple, peeled, diced
* 1 chicken breast, skinned, boiled, boneless
* 1/4 cup Mott's Healthy Harvest Unsweetened Peach Medley Applesauce
* 1 1/2 cups Honey Nut Cheerios
* 1 egg
In mixing bowl, mix ingredients well. On nonstick cookie sheet, place spoon-size balls one inch apart, and bake 20 minutes at 300 degrees.

(12) Chicken Pot Pie

* 1/2 cup diced chicken breast, boiled, skinned, boneless
* 1 1/2 cups frozen mixed vegetables
* 2 raw eggs
* 1 small sweet potato, boiled, peeled and chopped up
In mixing bowl, combine ingredients well. Spray mini-muffin pans with Pam and fill to top. Bake 20-25 minutes, or until beginning to brown, at 350 degrees.

(13) Chicken Egg Drop Soup

* 1 chicken breast, skinned, diced
* 2- 2 1/2 cups water
* 3/4 cup frozen mixed vegetables
* 1 raw egg, mixed well
In saucepan, boil chicken for 10 minutes. Add mixed vegetables. Cook an additional 10 minutes. Bring to another boil. Slowly stir in raw egg, stirring only in one direction. Turn off heat as soon as you start pouring in the egg. Let cool and serve. Before serving, sprinkle with vitamins, if desired.

(14) Glider Boost

* 1 quart water
* 2 teaspoons molasses
* 1 teaspoon all natural apple cider vinegar (the kind you buy in the health food store)
Fill quart jar halfway with water. Add other ingredients. Shake to mix well. Add the rest of the water. Give to gliders once every two months to boost immunity and reduce the male scent.

(15) Glider Elixir Use for medicinal purposes only!

* 1 part Wombaroo milk replacer
* 1 part Pedialyte
* 1 part Gerber Baby Rice Cereal
* 1 part fruit flavored yogurt
Mix. Give one to two teaspoons twice daily. Use this if a glider is depressed or has diarrhea until you can get to the vet (hopefully first thing in the morning).

I claim none of these Sugar Glider Recipes. I just found them and decided to share these with everyone.

Sorry I don't remember the website I got them from. I saved them to my Microsoft Word back in January 2009 , and just copied and pasted them here for everyone. Gee didn't know I had to put the website here. I will remember that next time. That's the reason for me stating I don't claim none of these recipes. If I had known there was going to be a problem for me sharing them I would have just kept them to myself. But I notice there was a few people including myself that has picky eating gliders and was trying to help them out so they could keep their gliders healthy. For the ones who thanked me. You are very welcome. Next time I have some to share I will send a private message to yall. Because there seems to be a problem posting here if you don't have a website you got them from. I see a lot of recipes on here that people share that I know that came from a web site and they don't post the site they got them from. They are like me and like to share different things with people.

Thanks again to the ones that appreciated them.
Keri

I know I copied the whole thing to my Microsoft word back in Jan. 2009 but I couldn't remember the site I got them from. That's the whole reason for me stating that I don't claim none of these recipes. I don't bookmark every site I visit. If I see something I might need and feel that I won't return back to that site I don't book mark it I just copy and paste what ever and save it to Microsoft word. even the part where I stated that I don't claim none of these are on the saved Document because I have e-mailed the recipes to other sugar glider owners. And they seem to not complain about me not having a site where I got them from, they appreciate them. And i don't take credit for something that's not mine. It would be different if I had claimed them then you or some one run across the site and say something I would understand. But i didn't claim them yesterday or the day back in Jan 2009 when I found them. I see know harm in me saving something for future use to my computer. You show me where it wrong for me or anyone else to copy and paste something to save for future use and not claim it as their own then I will not copy and paste nothing else. I will not be back on this forum period because it seems like I am not welcomed here and if I am not welcomed here then I won't return back.
 Look what I found on Ebay

No one said you weren't welcome. It's for YOUR own good and safety so YOU don't get into any kind of trouble if the original author happened to be upset about it or something. I don't think anyone has to "prove" you shouldn't copy and paste other's content without stating the source. It was really that simple. How do I know? Because I was told the same thing a long time ago and it certainly isn't personal. It actually makes sense if you think about it. THIS particular thread may not be a good example, but anyone can post anything related to diet, health, etc... but there are people that like to know that it's legitimate if they are taking someone's word for it. There's no reason to be so defensive.

Exactly! I know that I've cut and pasted portions of many a website for posting here, but I always provide a link to the source. That way, folks can check out the site for themselves and evaluate its legitimacy.

I'm sorry that you don't feel welcome. I should have expressed myself better.

You CAN copy and paste all day long...we're just asking someone cite the source. This REALLY is not a big deal. When you're copying and pasting to Word or wherever, simply type in where you found it somewhere. Problem solved. This is for everyone's benefit.

Do you HAVE to cite the source? No...it was a request/suggestion/recommendation for those of us that like to see where our information is coming from and it's an ethical thing to do.

It would really be a shame if you left the site because someone SUGGESTED something that can protect you. How anyone asking for a source equals you not being wanted doesn't make sense. No one wants you to leave and I hope you reconsider.

I think you miss understood completely but don't sweat it, I've misunderstood in the exact same way in a post I did some time ago. Rita commented to me one time and I didn't know how to take it (it was on a completely different topic) and when I went back to answer her, (I was taking it personal) she wrote back telling me that it wasn't directed directly to me, but to all members so that they know in the future. It made me feel better and now I know when I get a comment back, to keep in mind that they're not trying to scold me, but to let me know and EVERYONE know if an issue pops up. I don't think she meant just you, I think she meant for everyone that read it, that we need to be careful. I truely don't think anyone is mad at you at all - just trying to protect you incase the person who posted these recipes on their website doesn't happen to come across this and then wants to make a stink about it against you or the site.

As for saving it on your own personal computer, as far as I know, thats completely legal. If anyone knows otherwise, please correct me. You just have to be careful when sharing it on an open forum without giving it reference for the reason I wrote above.

We love sharing here and we're glad to see you sharing. Its a great topic and very helpful! Thank you! I don't think thats what the issue was at all. Keep sharing but protect yourself when its so public - as we all should.

I've noticed that new people have trouble feeling welcome here. I felt the exact same way at first but PLEASE know that if you stick around, you'll start to learn more and more how to read people on here - just like I had to do and you'll realize you're just one of the crew and that people are actually alot nicer than meets the eye at first. Dizzysmom is one of the nicest people you could ever meet and knowing her now, I know that her intentions weren't to upset you at all either. I don't know Kyro that well but I've been on here long enough to have read tons from her and shes a link queen. She'll be here to help you tremedously too if you just give her the chance. I've also seen her defend people and stand up for what she feels is right. Please don't feel offended. You are welcome here for sure! Please just give yourself some time to become comfortable with everyone and how everyones bluntness isn't always a personal thing against you at all. ***hugs***
