Live food

Right now I'm feeding my male on a combination of frozen bloodworms and betta pellets. I usually give him a pellet or two a day or a small chunk of frozen bloodworms on weekends. I was thinking of trying out live food and seeing how he takes to it, but I can't find anywhere that sells live bloodworms in my area. There is a nearby herp store that sells mealworms, but they seem like they would be too big. Do you guys agree? Does anyone have experience with feeding their bettas live food?
Thanks in advance.

I feed my guys grindal worms once a week (until my culture has a chance to grow a little more).

Other good live foods are
wingless fruit flies
white worms
black worms

I'm not sure about meal worms. You can order a culture of food off sites like Aquabid and Ebay.
