Try flightless fruit flies, they seem to be the recommended diet for small froglets.

Well if they just morphed then it's absolutely normal that they are not eating. They may take a few days, even a couple of weeks, to settle and start their new diet.
Anyway, crickets should be fine as long as they are the apropriate size, but you can also give them fruitflies (as Kerry mentioned), isopods or springtails.

Whether you feed them fruit flies or pinhead crickets the feeder item of choice will need to be dusted with calcium 3-4 times a week and dusted with vitamins at least twice a week until they are a few months of age. In addition, the crickets will need to be gut-loaded at least 4 hours before they are fed to the froglets.

They'll feed 3-4 days after they completely absorb their tail. Diets (that are moving) the width of their eyes will do.
