Can Hamsters Eat Shreddies?

Shreddies are a breakfast cereal made from lattices of wholegrain wheat.

The cereal is marketed with the whole grain symbol, as part of a marketing campaign emphasising the healthiness of the cereal. Wheat for Shreddies is sourced from over 500 different farms within the UK.

Sugared, chocolate and honey-flavoured versions of the cereal are available in the UK as Frosted Shreddies, Coco Shreddies, and Honey Shreddies, and an orange-flavoured version of the Coco Shreddies has also become available recently. The former advertising slogan in the UK was: “Keeps hunger locked up until lunch”. The advertising slogan for the Frosted and Coco Shreddies was: “Too tasty for geeks”. (source)

So can hamsters eat shreddies?

Yes they can eat original shreddies and not those that are flavored. Don’t give with milk though.

However, they hold no nutritional value for them so don’t give them too much. They are a definitely a treat for them.
