I would assume it would be the same as most normal species. Try giving her normal foods, like honey and sugar water for carbs and mealworms, superworms, crickets, and fruit flies for protein. If she doesn't like them, try with other foods.
"God made every kind of wild beasts and every kind of livestock and every kind of creeping things;" (including ants) "and God saw that it was good." Genesis 1:25
