Hello and welcome to the AC!

the best food is not a single food at all, but rather a variety! A good quality flake or pellet food is a good start, but then it's best to supplement their diet with vegetables, live food (mine love brine shrimp), etc.

If you do brine shrimp, remember that what your fish doesn't eat will die.

They are scavengers and grazers. Pieces of cucumber or spinach sometimes work, (don't do lettuce!) fruit, seafood, pellets, flakes... you name it, goldfish should eat it, though sometimes with fancies you get a picky one and have to play around with the food ideas.
