    Hamsters are surprisingly easy pets to raise.

    They can eat almost anything humans eat. Note - ALMOST. Never ever give them avocado, onion or any citrus fruits.

    Don't give them hamster pellets from the pet shop, as these have absolutely no nutritional value for them in the least (besides them smelling and tasting absolutely horrible).

    They love fruit and vegetables. Avoid giving them processed foods though, as they are very bad for them (and us).

    As a treat, I sometimes give my 2 hamsters a spare rib bone to chew on. They love these, as they help to keep their teeth short. They also need protein in their diet, so it is advisable to give them beans as well. A lot of people say to never give them meat, but as a very occasional treat, it does them no harm. Ensure that the meat is 100% properly cooked though. My 2 hamsters have lived for over 3 years already on this varied, and organic diet.

    They love oatmeal porridge as well. Always remember though, to introduce new foods to your pet in moderation, as a sudden influx of different foods can result in diarrhoea.

    I hope this is of some help to you.

    Sorry, I misunderstood.  I thought this forum was about eating hamsters, not feeding them.  I guess the 'Hamster Food' title threw me off.
