Feeding betta fry

I have a few betta fry in my aquarium. They were hatched in an established planted tank and I assume that they've been snacking on the various tiny creatures that must have sprouted up.

But...just to be sure, what can I add to the tank so that these little guys have enough to eat? I'm thinking maybe throw yeast in there? That will encourage worms to grow to eat the yeast and then the fry can eat those worms?

I culture microworms, they're really easy to culture. Just put oatmeal, water and east, into a container. They're small enough, for the smallest of fry to eat.
for the first week: infusorians, egg yolk, banana/microworms, vinegar eels.
for the remainder of the first 1-1.5 months: banana/microworms, vinegar eels, baby brine shrimp (freshly hatched)
starting at 1-1.5 months: frozen daphnia, repashy meat pie, golden pearls
1.5-2.5 monthes: golden pearls, frozen daphnia, frozen brine shrimp, frozen bloodworms (at first cut up, then whole), frozen mysis (at first cut up then whole) atisons betta pro
2.5 months and beyone: whatever it will eat. it is now a sexually mature (or almost mature) subadult. it should not only accept pellets and frozen food with enthusiasm but beg for them like any adult betta.
