Default Sugar Gliders

Does anyone have sugar gliders? I am looking for a good all natural holistic diet for them

I did some research about them a few months back after seeing them at a pet expo. I found a number homemade diets as well as the fact that there are good prepared diets that you supplement with a little fresh food. I don't remember the names of the well-liked homemade diets, but they should be easy to find. I just remember there are lots of different opinions!

I used to keep them, they are amazing animals.
I fed an entirely fresh diet; fruit, veg, eggs, insects, chicks, pinky mice. They also had nectar made with honey and vitamin supplements. They had bits of cooked meat and yoghurt or cottage cheese as treats

Well I have 2 females. 12-14 weeks old no names yet lol.

I am looking at the Wombaroo High Protein Supplement thoughts on it? I am currently feeding baby organic yogurt, spinach, carrots, cantaloupe, honey dew, organic baby chicken food, egg, and exotic nutrition HPW jar
HPW / Fruit & Veggie - HPW in Jars

Many don't know enough about the jar but don't think it is as good as the Wombaroo.

Thoughts?

Oh and if you do decide to get a pair DO NOT go with Pocket Pets (they hang at expos) they are similar to a puppy mill with horrible info and sick gliders

I had a little female named Tootsie. They're omnivores and I found their diet very complex. I occasionally fed her baby food if I was feeling lazy. She had quite the attitude with live pray. She always went for the head first. I can't really remember what I fed her on a daily basis. I know a lot of food was wasted on her because she had a fresh diet. Also make sure you have a sugar glider cage and NOT a bird cage. Someone bought me a beautiful bird cage for her and I learned the hard way. The paint covering on bird cages are toxic to sugar gliders.

Yeah I have a sugar glider cage made by living world. I also have a critter nation that currently houses my rats. The gliders are babies and way too small for the CN now but eventually they will go there as my rats are more than halfway through their life span unfortunately they only live 2-3 years. The CN is also the double unit so I could easily split it if I need to also.

We need pics!
Do they have names yet?
I love them, they make fascinating pets, but are definitely not easy regarding diet. The main issue is getting enough variety of insects. When I had Gliders i also had reptiles and other exotics, so had all types of bugs around.
In the wild their protein comes from mostly insects, plus baby birds and eggs, small lizards and mammals
