I say you give it a break and let them build an appetite before you start manufacturing feeding devices. This is from Wikipedia and reflects much of what I've read in the past.
"ADFs are compatible with most bottom feeders and algae eaters. Respectful tropical fish can also be used as tank mates although aggressive fish will often fight or injure the frogs. As African dwarves are slow eaters it is not uncommon for tankmates to eat all the food while the frogs go hungry. If this becomes a problem, methods of delivering the food directly to the bottom of the tank (such as with a turkey baster) should be employed to ensure the frogs are adequately fed.
African dwarf frogs do not have teeth, so they swallow their food whole. Common foods include blood worms,brine shrimp, water fleas(daphnia), shrimp, and various brands of commercial frog food. These frogs will also eat mosquito larvae, black worms, guppy fry, glassworms, tadpole bites, reptomin, gammarus, dried krill, baby shrimp, frozen beefheart, small fish, and small earthworms. On rare occasions these frogs will eat water snails and brittle shells. African dwarf frogs are bottom-feeders and are rarely seen eating at the surface of the water."
