Red ear slidders wont eat?

I just bought two slidders home the other day and one of them maybe has taken about 4 bites of food and the other has not eaten yet. Any tricks i can use to help them? I am guessing they just need to get use to their surroundings. How long can they go without food?
Update: I bought the food that they had at the pet store....there was only one kind
