Dog Food for B&T Pups?

My female is now almost 7 months old and my male is almost 5 months old. I have been trying to find a food that they will like to eat, I started out with Diamond Naturals All Life Stages dog food. They didn't really seem to like it too much. So, I switched to Purina One SmartBlend for Large Breed Puppies. I'm not sure that this is the right food for them. Where we live, right now it is dipping into the 20's at night. I have 2 heat lamps in the metal shed they stay in at night with straw and blankets. I am concerned that they won't have the good nutrition for winter to stay healthy. They are acting like they are starving even though I feed them 2 cups of dry, twice a day plus half a can of wet food once a day. I just wormed them 2 weeks ago with Sentry 7-Way De-wormer. I have not started them with coon hunt training, so they are not extremely active. There is only ONE place that sells Valu-Pak food in my area and I do not know how much it costs.

What are your suggestions for food to switch my hounds to?

Pro plan. Best food I have found for my personal opinion.

Also to help in the winter buy bulk boxes of elbow macaroni noodles. Boil 3 cups and split it between them. Full of carbs to help them with cold weather.

So, Purina is not that bad of a brand after all, is that what you're saying? I have read a lot of negative stuff about them....I just want decent food for my babies. That's all I am after. Decent price is a plus

Eukanuba? Expensive. I've seen that food in stores, horribly expensive.

Victor in the Teal colored bag! My pups have done great on this stuff. About a dollar a pound.
