Mesclun greens OK for Hammy?

I buy this mix of salad greens for us to eat from time to time and wonder if I can give some to my hammy too. Anybody know if it's OK for him to eat?

the reason that I was asking if it's a dwarf hamster is because dwarf hamsters are prone to diabetes. if it is a dwarf I wouldn't give too much leafy greens, I also wouldn't give fruit or corn, or any other sweet greens.

My dwarf hammy likes greens beans, clover, brocoli, carrots, and of course, seeds. I do give lettuce, but not very much.

It's not a case of what your hammy will like.It's "What is OK for them to eat"I think a leaf as a treat but nothing more than that would I try if it were my hammy.A guinea pig I would say give them the whole thing and enjoy watching them munch!
