You can use treats and tidbits to help you to tame your hamster and win his trust. By feeding him with your hand, he will begin to associate you with nice things. Hamsters have poor eyesight and so he may nibble your finger by mistake at first until he gets used to your smell. Don't give your hamster any sweet or salty treats designed for humans; instead, try healthy tidbits such as raisins, peanuts, or treats made especially for hamsters such as Living World Hamster Drops. Cereal sticks like Living World's Hamster Sticks can be hung to make your hamster work for some food, as well as being a treat. The chewable wooden core is also good for his teeth.
