It depends on the type of tadpole, but most tadpoles will eat lettuce and when they are frogs they will eat crickets. depending on the frog you will need at least a 30 gallon terrarium for four of them.

If you can keep the water clean- I've found them to absolutely thrive on dry dog food. You can crack up a piece and put a little in and, then when that's done with, you can add more. If they're not eating it they're full and you can take it out... but they love to eat.
