Question Veggies for hamsters?

What are some treats that you give your little hammies? I have heard that they really like carrots and some other veggies but I did not know that you could give them that actually! haha I wanted to ask before I tried anything new. I was not sure if they could eat that type of stuff or not. Thanks for any help in advance,

Is best not to try a lot of new things at once, as it might hurt their tummies, but that article on my site lists most common things a Syrian can eat.

Wow thank you so much! I just recently got a teddy bear hamster and so far he has been wonderful! I am not trying to do too much in one day. I have been researching and found out that patience pays off haha Thank you so much!

my hamster used to love carrots, wouldnt eat any other veggies tho. dont give him too much tho, i used to use a cap to a milk jug to put fresh food in. and if your hamster hides or stores his food in a corner (which most do) you will want to make sure hes not putting fresh veggies in there, as they will spoil and make him ill.

I used to only give him fresh veggies the morning of cage cleaning day, that way he would have plenty of time to nibble them, but in a few hours i could clean his cage and toss his leftovers
