Yes it will re-grow them with a molt of two, and 1 food item a week should suffice.

You can feed it a ton but...

Over feeding, in my experience, will cause them to accelerate their growth, but also accelerated their death. My first T, a gbb, died after only 1 year, as it mature early due to my excessive feeding. Now I have a slower feeding regiment. 1 time per week for sub adults and 1 time every 2 weeks for adults. Everyone is healthy and happy.

You have a young Aviculara Aviculara, feed it every 3 days and it'll grow back in a few molts. Depending on the breeder you bought it from, it's probably not that old where powerfeeding will hurt it.
