Cricket or cockroach is more nutritious for ants than meal worms. I use crickets.
Proverbs 6:6-11

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.

25ml Liquid Amino Acid (a kind of athlete drink known as BCAA, usually sold in capsule form in pharmacies)
50ml Maple Syrup (or Honey)
130gr Glucose Known as grape sugar, normal sugar good as well)
480ml water

mix these on room temperature and make tube setups with this mixture for the ants to drink
contains everything they get from aphids in the nature
