High Protein Wombaroo Diet (HPW)

Ingredients

2 cups warm water
1-1/2 cup honey
3 scrambled eggs
1/4 cup High Protein Wombaroo Powder (if you have a breeding pair with a nursing or lactating female, increase the amount of HPW Powder to 1/2 cup for the female's HPW Diet)
1 tablespoon Australian bee pollen

Instructions

Cook eggs, set aside. (Easy microwaving instructions below.)

In large bowl mix water and honey. Stir until honey is dissolved.

Add in HPW powder, mix well.

In a blender add in eggs, bee pollen and 1/2 to 1 cup HPW liquid mixture.

Blend for two minutes.

Add in additional liquid and blend for another two minutes.

Pour into a freezer safe bowl with an airtight lid. Keep in freezer. HPW will freeze to consistency of ice cream.

Feeding Instructions Per Glider

1.5 Teaspoons of HPW
1 Tablespoon of mixed fruits
1 Tablespoon of mixed veggies
Mealies for treats
Gliderade once or twice a week

Extra Advice

  • Feed in the evening close to the time your gliders wake up. Remove the food in the morning, so your gliders don't try to snack on the leftovers during the day (you don't want them eating fruits and vegetables that have been sitting out all night).
  • You can cook the eggs in the microwave - it's faster and less cleanup. Just make sure to use a tall plastic cup and mix the eggs up really well. Microwave for 30 second intervals, stirring in between, until they're done.
  • The final HPW Diet mixture will be runny and a bit foamy at the top. This is normal.
  • If you have two gliders, double the recipe to 1 TBSP HPW, 2 TBSP fruits, & 2 TBSP veggies.
  • Strive to serve fruits and vegetables with an overall calcium:phosphorous ratio of close to 2:1.
  • If using frozen fruits and vegetables, I recommend thawing them in the microwave, cutting them up into small pieces, then mixing the HPW mixture in with them. The HPW will thaw quickly when you mix it in. HPW mixture does NOT need to be microwaved.
  • Australian bee pollen is different from American bee pollen. I recommend Australian bee pollen as this is what the sugar gliders eat in the wild.
  • If you are doubling the amount of HPW powder for a nursing female, it is ok to have the other cage-mates eating the same batch with the increased amount of powder.
  • 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.
