If your tank is a few month old with some moss or other plants, there's no need for special food especially for cherries. Just make sure your filter intake won't suck them in then you'll be okay. Of course, getting commercial baby shrimp food helps but really not necessary. If you really want to do something to feel more comfortable but don't want to pay for the expensive stuff, feed your shrimp some sinking pellet food, some powder will be missed by adult shrimps and perfect for babies. Flakes work that way too.
