Default Favourite vegetables?

My dwarf hamster loves his vegetables but some more than others so he doesnít get much variety. Tomatoes, broccoli and spinach he loves. I donít give him too much tomato as Iíve read it is acidic but he does love it! Heís not too hot on carrots, Brussels sprouts or cucumber. Does yours have favourites too? Maybe there will be something heís not tried yet that I can introduce him to?

Broccoli and cucumber are favourites here. Or a couple of small peas. Likewise carrots aren’t favourite but get eaten. For Syrians I sometimes give a blueberry or a bit of apple or strawberry instead of veg, but not regularly. I wouldn’t give fruit to a Russian dwarf hamster though due to the sugars. If it’s summer I give a bit of clover out of the garden (the flower and stalk). They love that.

Sorry to be a damp squib but I wouldn’t give tomato at all - it’s one hamsters aren’t supposed to have. Cabbage is something they should only rarely have. Lettuce isn’t good for them either although romaine is supposed to be ok.
