Worms are the best food item you could offer them. Liver is a horrible food item as a staple. Liver contains excessive amounts of vitamin A, which can lead to hypervitaminosis.

Not to mention itīs nutritionally incomplete, they canīt digest it properly, itīs too caloric and a completely unnatural food for them.
As Justin says, earthworms, thatīs the ideal food.
