Extra Advice

  • If freezing Original BML Diet mixture into ice cube trays, one cube should equal around 2 Tablespoons. You may want to test it out to make sure.
  • You should be able to find the Gerber yogurt juice in the baby food aisle. If you can not find it, you can substitute it with 1/4 cup plain yogurt and 1/4 cup mixed fruit juice.
  • The baby food chicken does not have the most pleasant smell. The chicken will say either Chicken with Chicken Gravy or Chicken with Chicken Broth. Either one is fine. You can also substitute the chicken with the turkey baby food.
  • DO NOT substitute the Rep-Cal Herpivite Vitamin Supplement with any other supplement.
  • DO NOT feed the pits or seeds of apples, cherries, peaches, etc.
  • Use fresh or frozen fruits and vegetables - NOT canned.
  • Young joeys may eat more BML and less fruits & veggies. This is ok. You should continue to offer them every night.
  • If you need to feed your gliders a few hours early, prepare the diet without thawing the fruits and vegetables. It should be thawed out by the time they wake up.
