Fresh foods to feed your hamster
Yum! Fresh foods! Other than the regular hamster mix, you want to feed your hamster fresh foods at least 4 times a week. Today, Mocha has broccoli, lettuce, celery leaves, a small piece of whole wheat bread, and a very, very, very small pinch of cheese. These things are all safe for all types of hamsters. The kinds of foods you want avoid are sugary foods and citric fruits such as strawberry, orange, etc. Blueberry is one of the only fruits for dwarf hamsters that I'm positive is safe for them, as long as it is in small amounts. The smallest blueberry in the container, cut in half, is as much as you want to give them. Syrians can have a little more, because they are not prone to diabetes. Winter whites don't get diabetes very easily, you have to be trying (which you should NEVER do) to give them diabetes. So I don't worry about Mocha that much, although I don't give her many sugary foods, because all hamsters can become obese. If you have a Syrian, you can give them a small piece of apple. Only Syrians and robos can have apple. I found a SUPER list of foods that you can feed your hamster, and it also includes a list of foods you can't. This is not mine, and I don't claim it to be.
