I have a new newt and it will not eat its food
You need to make sure it's set up properly. Most newts do well in a half land half water setup.
Keep the temps cool, the water should be filtered, with lots of hiding places.
Newts prefer live food. Small earthworms are the best.
I hope this helps, but since you didn't provide any specifics, I'm only just guessing at what the problem might be.
