Flakes as part of a balanced diet?

Hey there. So, I've a question-- what do you think of flakes as a supplementary food for bettas? I've been trying to increase the range of foods my boys eat-- new life spectrum betta formula is still my staple, but I've added another type of pellet, frozen bloodworms, freezedried bloodworms, and now flakes to my fish's diets. the freezedried bloodworms I use once every two weeks or so, just small sprinkle in addition to a pellet or two. I know freezedried/flake foods aren't the best... but are they good in small amounts now and again?

I'm no expert but I feed a mix of flakes and frozen, heavier on the frozen - bloodworms, brine shrimp, freshwater mix. I alternate the type of flake throughout the week - Omega-1 betta buffet, and Angels Plus garlic, vitamin plus and spirulina. I soak the flakes for a minute before giving them to D'Argo and am amazed by how much the expand.

Bettamin flake.

It adds more to Akira and Kai's diet because it has bloodworms as well from what I read. They both go insane for bettamin.
