Can Hamsters Eat Shredded Wheat?

Shredded wheat is a breakfast cereal made from whole wheat formed into pillow-like biscuits.

It is commonly available in three sizes;

  • bite sized (¾×1 in),
  • miniature (nearly half the size of the bite-sized pieces),
  • original.

Both smaller sizes are available in a frosted variety, which has one side coated with sugar and usually gelatin.

Some manufacturers have produced “filled” versions of the bite-size cereal.

These contain a raisin at the center, or apricot, blueberry, raspberry or cranberry filling.

So can hamsters eat shredded wheat?

Yes they can eat shredded wheat.

It is fine for them to nibble on but don’t give them too much as it holds no nutritional value for them.

Don’t give to them with any fillings in them or additives. Just the plain version is sufficient for them.
