As soon as they start nibbling on mom's grain buy them a creep feeder and their own foal grain. I would stay away from sweet feed and look for a complete feed with atleast 14% protein. Feed that according oto weight.
In addition to that they need hay if they aren't on a field with grazing. I feed timothy hay or a timothy mix. Some people like to feed their babies alfalfa or an alfalfa mix, it depends on the foals condition and what nutrients they need. Your vet can help you make these decisions.
