You can start at about a week after they were born. The first fewbdays they don't need to feed since they still have there eggsac but once they start free swimming you can start feeding them the microworms. They will start eating the infusoria in your tank for the very first couple of days but I've food that doesn't last long enough since my tank isn't too heavily planted so I throw in some worms at about the 5-7 day mark, or when they are starting to be free swimming.

if it true from what i read.
the banana worm can survive as long as the microworm and its smaller.
u can start feeding them when you see them swimming around.
