Fruit flies or springtails would probably be your best bet. Not sure how well pinhead crickets would work but that could be another option.

Id try the smallest pinhead crickets you can find. In general banded crickets are smaller so you could these.

fruit flies are another option but I hear they aren't as nutritional.

Offer pre killed of whatever you got
and in small portions, it will only eat a certain amount at that size, if you put too large a corpse in there it may foul up the enclosure. Offer food regularly for faster growth, when I first got my pair of S. alternans they weren't far off from that size. Also keep it nice and moist they are fragile at this size. Good luck!

You can feed them pretty much anything. even little bits of raw chicken. they even accept slices of grape
