You should have already picked up the supplies to make food for the babies before you bred them. :/

When they are free swimming (3 days after hatching) to 1 week old, most people will feed them microworms (or banana or walter worms), and then when they are older than a week, newly hatched brine shrimp. This requires you to set up a brine shrimp hatchery.

Are they still hanging out near the top or have they started to adventure to the bottom of the tank?

The ones at the bottom should be eating the microworms.

are the worms too big? Betta fry vary in size and occasionally Microworms are just too big.

You can try egg yolk if the worms are just too big. Hard boil an egg, take a tiny tiny piece of the yolk and crush it and mix it in with some water until it is mostly dissolved in an egg slurry. Take a tiny tiny dip of it and add it to the fry water. Some people use a spray bottle to distribute it over the surface, but i found that it was too hard to control. I liked to dip in my finger and then spread it along the surface of the water. Be careful with this method and be sure to clean the tank regularly as the egg will spoil the water fast.

Other options are freshly hatched bbs. They move differently than the worms and don't just collect at the bottom. This might entice your fry more.
