What To Feed Premature Birthed Fry?

My female guppy gave birth to about 4-5 fry before she was supposed to because she was being harrassed by a male. They're really tiny like maybe a mm long. They were born yesterday morning and i haven't gotten them to eat yet. I moved the fry and my 3 most pregnant guppies (so i don't have to go hunting for fry all over my tank again) to a 20 gallon fry tank. Since i moved them yesterday morning @ about 7 am pacific time i haven't gotten either the female guppies or the fry to eat. I'm surprised the females haven't eaten because when i got them from the petstore about a minute after I put them in the tank they ate food I dropped in the tank. Should I be worried or is this normal?
