Bufo bufo are not fussy eaters, I would recommend field sweepings as the main part of the diet if possible and top up with all the usual feeder insects.

Newly metamorphosed Bufo bufo are surprisingly small and struggle with melanogaster. Start off with springtails and aphids and you should be on to melanogaster in a couple of weeks.
After a month or so start training them to take worms such as whiteworms then later, earthworms.

Their size upon metamorphosis can vary, depending on how much space and food the tadpoles had. small ones are much more difficult to rear than larger ones (which are still very small) but they do have a head start.
If youre currently rearing some tadpoles, try to make them as big a possible (dont overcrowd, clean regularly etc)
