My hamsters love Lettuce

We love lettuce so do my 6 hamsters. Each morning, I would feed them lettuce without fail provided there is no stock of lettuce in my fridge. By the way, my hamsters stay in the kitchen just beside my fridge. They have to stay in the kitchen as I wouldn't want them to mess up my new furniture in the living room.

The babies have grown up. They are already one year old.

our favorite lettuce dish
Simply stir-fry them with others such as eggs, tomatoes or minced meat.



Depending on the variety, lettuce is a good source of vitamin A, vitamin K and potassium, with higher concentrations of vitamin A found in darker green lettuces. It also provides some dietary fiber (concentrated in the spine and ribs), carbohydrates, protein and a small amount of fat. With the exception of the iceberg type, lettuce also provides some vitamin C, calcium, iron and copper, with vitamins and minerals largely found in the leaf. Lettuce naturally absorbs and concentrates lithium.
