i got mine when she was 2, and started her off with 1 small mice every week, then after 4-5 months was feeding her 2 small every 10 days greedy piggy, you could try that but i think every snake will eat what they want, see how it goes :D

when they are in a shedding cycle they will go off their food and be a bit grumpy, keep misting the viv to help him shed easier. when the eyes milk over (its an opaque fluid that forms under the skin to help it seperate from the new skin and come off) his vision will be badly impaired so just leave him alone apart from misting. as his eyes have cleared up he should shed within a couple of days now. nothing to worry about, just make sure the eyecaps come off too.

Whenever my royals eyes go cloudy it will take another 2-3 days after they become uncloudy again to shed.... Plus mine sheds without coming out from his hide, little git!
