They aren't going to forget how to eat. If they need food, they will eat it. If they don't, then they won't. You can provide them with different types of food to see what they fancy if you like. They are most likely at a stage where they don't need a lot of food. young colonies have things like this. they are fine :)
Proverbs 6:6-8

Go to the ant, you sluggard;
consider its ways and be wise!
It has no commander,
no overseer or ruler,
yet it stores its provisions in summer
and gathers its food at harvest.

Keeping Tetramorium immigrans, Lasius Neoniger
