I have given Charlie sugar snap peas before. Raw ones. I cut the end off then cut about a centimetre. Then peel off the stringy bits from either side/end (it sometimes falls apart a bit at this point). So he gets a bit of the outside bit with a mini pea or two inside. If it is mixed veg, best be careful there isn't anything added like salt or other seasoning etc

Aw shame Sweep missed out! Mine love sugar snap peas.
Maybe make yourself a list of safe veg for a quick check so you know next time & Sweep can get a treat

Hope that helps.

Safe veg, those marked * are relatively high in sugar so only feed to diabetes prone species as an occasional treat if at all.
Asparagus
Basil
Broccoli
Brussels sprouts
Common or red clover
Cabbage, green or red
Carrot*
Cauliflower
Celery
Chard
Coriander
Courgette
Cress (not mustard & cress as commonly sold together)
Cucumber
Dandelion leaves & flowers
Endive/chicory
Green beans/runner beans
Kale
Pak choi/Bok choi
Parsley
Peas/mange tout/sugar snap/snow*
Peppers, any colour
Potato/sweet potato cooked only*
Radicchio
Spinach
Squash/pumpkin*
Swede
Sweet corn/baby corn*
Turnip

We use this page: [HAMSTER NUTRITION V] Safe Dietary Supplements for Hamsters - Food & Nutrition - Hamster Hideout Forum
It has a really nice systematic list.
