Hamsters are actually omnivores too, just not quite as much as hedgehogs. But they do eat insects & sometimes small animals in the wild. You can give hamsters crickets, mealworms, eggs, and little pieces of meat for treats. The two first sites I found also mentioned giving dog/cat biscuits as treats as well, so I highly doubt the food would pose a risk to the hamster.
