*Feeding Hamsters - Basics*
The basis of a hamster's diet should be a good quality store-bought food
designed specifically for hamsters. Should you choose a pelleted diet or a
diet based on a loose seed mix?

*Pelleted Diets*
Pelleted foods offer a completely balanced diet, and for this reason I
generally recommend pelleted diets. As explained below, a hamster can be
picky iwth loose mixes resulting in an imbalanced diet. However, pelleted
diets are a bit monotonous and some hamsters will refuse them. A pelleted
mix can be supplemented with a variety of other items, as long as the
pelleted food makes up the bulk of the diet to ensure well-balanced
nutrition.

*Loose Mix/Seed Diets*
It is important to pick a loose mix diet that contains a variety of foods
such as grains and dried vegetables along with some seeds -- and some loose
mixed foods also contained a balanced pellet food as part of the mix. As
mentioned previously, the biggest problem with loose mixes is that hamsters
can pick and choose their favorite bits, which could result in a dietary
imbalance. When feeding a loose mix, make sure your hamster empties the
food bowl before adding more as this is the best way to make sure your
hamster does not just eat his or her favorite
