Default Fruits that are OK for a Dwarf Campbells hamster?

Hello.

I know that anything with too high a sugar content is very bad for dwarf hamsters as they are prone to diabetes, but our one little Campbells dwarf hamster (Horatio, Admiral Lord Nelson, Earl of the Somme and Duke of Agincourt) really loves the sweeter tasting things in his food mixture (they both get Mini Hamster Nature food mix from a company called Versele Laga, which we supplement with fresh food consisting mostly of fresh raw broccoli, cauliflower, green beans, peas, lettuce, spinach and baby corn).

We give him only a tiny slice of apple (5mm x 5mm x 3mm) every other day and on days we don't give him this, we give him a small piece of carrot, both of which he loves!

Are there any other sweet tasting fruits that we can safely give him in moderation? How are strawberries?

Thank you so much in advance.
