Question What to give a fussy hamster!?

Hi
My boy boris is really quite fussy! He likes his basic harry hamster mix but I want to give him more I try veggies such as broccoli carrot Cucumber banana he throws it and doesn’t touch it!
Any ideas what to try for such a fuss pot! Nothing seems to take his fancy!

You should try the "if you're not going to have it then you won't get anything else" method.

It can take a while to find which veg your ham really likes, most hams enjoy them but not all so just keep experimenting with those.
What other things have you tried? Seeds like sunflower, pumpkin, hemp & flax are usually popular although they should only be given in moderation.
Some but not all Syrians like mealworms & millet too.
Another thing to try is tiny pieces of fresh cooked plain chicken or dried chicken.

Some Hamsters are just very choosey, my three current Hamsters, Sterling, Franc and Toria which came from the same place rejects every man-made food/treat like Yogurt Drops, those pillow like thing that is made out of Hay and Carrot Sticks, though Sterling is starting to like the Yogurt Drops.

Just keep trying, if not then just don't give one to him.

My boy Artie would have nothing to do with vegetables for the longest time. Eventually he decided he liked red pepper and now he'll eat any vegetable I give him. Just persevere. I just kept putting veg out for Artie every night as the rest of the hams were getting theirs anyway and after a few months he decided it was all quite delicious after all
