Fruits & Vegetables for Hamsters

Home > Hamsters > Feeding

Fruits and vegetables are excellent foods for hamsters in small amounts. Never try to make the majority of your hamsters diet out of fruits and/or vegetables. Hamster mix should always be the primary source of their nutrition.
When first starting to feed your hamster fruits introduce it very slowly into their diet. If you notice any change in their behaviour or if they appear to become sick stop feeding all fruits and vegetables. Once they have recovered completely you can begin to slowly introduce the fruits and vegetables back into their diet.
The following is only a partial list of the fruits and vegetables that can be fed to hamsters.
