Fresh foods should be offered to your hamster as a treat food only. Offer your hamster one or two pieces total in a small amount two to three days apart. Too much can cause diarrhea.

The only time I give fresh foods more often is in cases where a nursing mother hamster may benefit from the additional moisture or hamster babies may need it because they can’t drink from a bottle.
