Can Hamsters Eat Cheerios

Yes! Hamsters are able to eat cheerios in small amounts. Make sure that you only feed the original cheerios to your hamster though and not the ones with frosting or other flavors as they contain more sugar and are bad for your hamsters health.

The cheerios that contain more sugar are especially bad for some types of hamsters as they are prone to getting diabetes and therefore its best to only give hamsters small amounts of plain cheerios.
