If you’ve recently brought home a new pet hamster, you are probably wondering what it is they like to eat. Hamsters are omnivores, meaning they like both plant and animal based foods. There are a variety of foods you can choose to feed your hamster, but some foods are better than others.

What To Feed Your Hamster

The ideal hamster diet will consist of…

  • Hamster PelletsHamster pellets provide a completely balanced diet and are often recommended for this reason.
  • Vegetables: Your hamster will enjoy a fresh supply of organically grown greens like romaine lettuce, spinach carrot tops, artichokes, broccoli spears and cabbage,
  • Fruit: Hamsters love fresh fruit like apples, pears, peaches, melon and bananas. Remember to only give in moderation as a supplement to their usual diet.
  • Occasional invertebrates: When fed in moderation, mealworms are a great and nutritious addition to your hamsters diet.
  • Hay: Fresh and suitable hay such as timothy hay is a great gnawing food that can help ensure your hamster’s teeth are kept in good condition.
  • Water: Make sure your hamster always has access to clean, fresh, water that is changed daily. Bottle water dispensers work very well for hamsters
