Are these safe to feed my baby toad...?

Hi everyone!

I recently caught 8 little toad tadpoles outside my boyfriend's house and they've now started to morph into little frogs! The first one, I moved over to a nice little terrarium with some soil bedding and a hide-y cave and all the necessary items...But all the pet stores around didn't have bugs small enough for him (he's the size of my pinky nail!)

So, we weren't sure what to go about feeding him. Since we're in the south, most of the ants around are really just red ants, and I didn't want to put a live one in with him for obvious reasons. So my stepbrother and I put a dead one in there in front of him, and he gobbled it up in like...two seconds!

Are these safe for him to eat? I got worried after he ate it, because I was afraid perhaps the ants were bad for him...so before I feed him any more I'd like to check. ^.^

Thanks!
