How does this work?

Well I read some where that bettas can't eat tropical flakes so I'm trying to keep females together with other fish. so how do you keep them from eating the other food and the other fish from eating their food?

You could cup the females at feeding time and float them in their cups to get their food, I think somebody on here does that

They CAN eat the flake food, if they like it. and if you have bottom eater you can get sinking pellets and feed the girls at the same time so they are distracted.

I would try the cup thing, but they came in a bag and I don't have any bottom feeders

I have females in a 29 gal with neons that I feed tropical flakes to. The females always eat some of the flakes, I put flakes in first then the betta pellets. I have had no problems with them eating flakes :)
