Default Froglets afraid of food??

I have two new frogs that just emerged from the water (one emerged about 8 days ago). Neither has any tail left. I noticed that they spend a lot of time in the water and when they get scared, that's where they go to and swim under a rock. I've tried feeding them a few times and they literally run away from the fruit flies (melongaster). Should they be doing this? Or is there something I'm doing wrong? I've looked around on the boards and haven't seen any topics about frogs being afraid of their food, unless I missed it.

In my experience it takes them a while to become "aggressive" eaters. What type of frog are you talking about? How much are you feeding them? Over feeding can add stress to their already stressful "new" life.
