I never post here, but as I foster hamsters and the like..
You want to avoid anything with softwoods, so no cedar or pine. I've always liked Aspen the best. It's cost effective, last awhile, and fun to dig in. I'd go as large as you can cage-wise. Hamsters are very, very active. My favorite cages have been my handmade ones (google "how to make a hamster cage"). Plenty of room, cheap and easy to clean.
Vegetables are great every day or as often as you have them. Just remember how small they are, so remember that their bellies are pretty tiny! Fruits are a good occasional treat, as most are high in sugar and some hamsters can be prone to diabetes or diabetes like problems.
