I think it's okay... they'll probably stay away from it if they feel it
will harm them.  If you can eat it, it's safe for them... they like cereal.

By all means clean and peel the fruit / veg that you want to give your
hamster, just to be safe.  And don't give him the top / leaf bit of
carrots or potatoes etc.

I had a lovely bit of cruchy carrot last night... yum!

Thanks. I gave him his first piece of apple today. It was funny watching
him trying to eat this soft food for the first time. I guess he likes the
apple juice. I'll have to try giving him cereal. I can see how they
must get sick of dehydrated corn and bird feed after a while.

sure it is ok to give them fresh things - in fact it can prolong their
lie by up to 12 months. my hamster is called What-a-Mess
