Bourbon's Modified Leadbeaters Recipe · Article

1/2 cup Honey (do not use honeycomb, raw or unfiltered honey. Most store bought honey can be used unless it contains one of the three words above.)
​2 oz. Gerber or Parent's Choice Mixed Fruit Juice
2 oz. Dannon Plain Yogurt -- or -- 2 oz of Activia Mixed Berry Yogurt (1/2 of 4 oz. container)
Turn on blender and add the next group of ingredients.

1/4 cup Wheat Germ
1 teaspoon Rep-Cal Herptivite MultiVitamin supplement (Blue label on a white plastic container, DO NOT SUBSTITUTE; can be found at PetSmart)
2 teaspoons Rep-Cal Calcium Supplement non-phosphorus with Vitamin D3 (Pink label on a white plastic container, DO NOT SUBSTITUTE; Can be found at PetSmart
2 2 1/2 oz jars of Stage 1 -- or -- 2 Beechnut, ​Gerber or Heinz Chicken baby food (The chicken will say either Chicken & Chicken Gravy or Chicken with Broth; either is acceptable)
1 hard-boiled egg, discard the shell

For the next 2 ingredients alternate them, a little cereal with a little juice, a little cereal with a little juice, going back and forth until both ingredients are mixed in.
1/4 cup of Apple Juice (just regular apple juice that you drink, do not use frozen or baby juice; you may substitute 1/2 of the apple juice with white grape juice.)
1/2 cup dry baby cereal

Heinz or Gerber (Rice or Oatmeal)

Note Most gliders do not like the taste of the oatmeal, I use rice with fruit bits

Blend well for 5 minutes. Turn off blender, then pour into Tupperware bowl or ice cube trays and FREEZE (It will freeze to the consistency of ice cream.)

1 cube is approximately 2 tablespoons, depending on your ice cube trays. Measure out your first few cubes by pouring 2 tablespoons into each cube.

This mix will feed 1 glider for approximately 1 month.

Do NOT mix the fruits and veggies in before freezing.

There is a very strict list of vegetables and fruits to be fed with the BML diet plan.
Vegetables corn, peas, carrots, green beans.
Fruits apples, grapes, watermelon, cantaloupe, honeydew, frozen pitted cherries, blueberries.

Do NOT feed the seeds of apples or the pits of cherries. You can use fresh or frozen, but do NOT used canned.

Do NOT use fruit slurries or vegetable relishes.

Feeding Instructions
The rule of thumb per glider is:

1 Tablespoon of the BML basic mix
1 Tablespoon of fruits
1 Tablespoon of veggies

Feed insects in the morning as a snack.
