Hamsters

Feeding Your Hamster

In the wild, hamsters are omnivores. They’ll happily munch on grasses, seeds, plant roots and the occasional tasty creepy-crawly. Depending on your breed of hamster you will need a different food.

Quick Tip

It's important to handle your hamster from an early age so they get used to socialising.

Supahamster Hamster Harvest is an ideal replacement: a complete food containing grains, nuts and delicious whole, dried mealworms for essential animal protein. Your pets will need solid food from as young as 7-10 days old.

Provide fresh food every day: around a tablespoon is plenty. It’s best served at your hamsters’ breakfast time – which is when they wake up in the evening. Use a ceramic bowl, which is more stable and gnaw-proof, and give fresh water daily in a bottle.
