That's a lot of food for a small colony. They eat that all up in a day?

I feed mine:
distilled water
honey water (1 part honey, 4 parts water)
frozen fruit flies

I tried feeding cut up mealworms but they seem to prefer the fruit flies
it's indeed probably ten times more than they need but my pet stone only sells the feeding insects in given portions and I don't want to keep some setup to house the worms longer than the time they live in the box they sell them, so I usually remove the older pieces every few days and give them fresh ones
