What Do Hamsters Eat?

Hamsters love to eat several vegetables and fruits like broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, grapes, apples, cherries, and strawberries.

No doubt, their favorite foods are the carrots and fruits because they are higher in sugar. Be that as it may, a small block of food is all a hamster needs for their meal.

Regrettably, hamsters can catch colds from their owners. So they need their owners to keep their hands washed well.
