You can give bloodworms as a treat every once in a while. Feed 1-2 bloodworms per feeding.
Keep in mind, bloodworms are like chocolate to betta fish, they have almost no nutritional value and need to be fed in moderation.
I dont recommend feeding sticks, they release many chemicals into the water and create ammonia. It can also overfeed your fish.
You should be feeding your betta 4 pellets a day, 2 in the morning, 2 at night (frequent feedings are best). You should be fasting (not feeding) your betta one day per week. When you want to feed bloodworms as a treat(recommended only every 2 weeks), you DO NOT feed pellets,just the 1-2 bloodworms, otherwise you would overfeed your fish, causing it to bloat, produce excess ammonia, and even death.
