Healthy treats have several benefits for both pets and pet owners. Treats can lend variety to an otherwise monotonous diet, provide good exercise for teeth and jaws, and add behavioral enrichment for animals that spend their lives in a small, limited environment. Most importantly, treats form a connection between pets and pet owners, assisting in bonding and training.

Offer in an open dish, or it can be placed into hollow openings in branches to allow animals to forage. Gummivore-Fare is a supplemental food, and should not be offered as the sole food source.

Do not leave moist food out for more than 12 hours, change out pellet food every 24 hours. Additional vitamins are not necessary if your glider's diet is made up of at least 75% Glider Complete. Always provide fresh drinking water to your sugar glider. Vary the diet by offering Fruits, Vegetables, Insects, Gliderade, Insect-Eater Diet, and more.
