Default What & how to feed paddletail newt ?

I've been feeding my paddletail newt frozen bloodworms and beef heart for the past few years with occasional live fish as well, but for the past few weeks he's hardly been eating and i'm getting worried.
should i introduce more live food into his diet ? is it a seasonal thing that i just haven't noticed until now ?
i'd appreciate any & all help on this matter !

You should change the food. Instead try offering earthworms. Get nightcrawlers from Walmart or a bait shop. If they are too big cut them to a more proper size.

I'd start with half a worm but I would feed mine once or twice a week. Just watch their size and that'll tell you.
