The more I research, the more it points to no. Seems I was confused by the name. I'm switching from Critter Love to the actual HPW diet with the Wombaroo powder. Are there any best practices for switching diets? Should I introduce it slowly or all at once?
 Look what I found on Ebay

You can just finish the batch of your previous staple and make a fresh batch using Wombaroo High Protein Supplement.

The recipe to mix the Original HPW recipe is exactly the same as Critter Love Plus.

Nutritionally the two powders are similar so your glider will no have a problem with the change.

Thank you, Candy. I had a long talk with the breeder that I'm getting my two girls from. She is very particular on what diet is being fed. We talked about the Glider Kids diets, which she approves of. I'm interested in possibly doing the #2 reduced sugar staple. Do you know offhand what the nutritional content of the OHPW is? I would like to compare the two staples, especially in the calcium department.

Wow! That's exactly what I needed. Looks like I'm switching to Glider Kids. Thank you very much, Candy. You are so helpful!
