I'd try worms, guppies, tadpoles if available, and even chopped up mouse pinkies. If a neonate hatchling garter takes food at all when first brought home, they tend to eat quite well in my experience and you have an excellent chance of getting them started on rodents which helps to minimize the high parasite risks of a fish and worm diet. Many young garters will refuse to eat in captivity though so if you can't get him to eat in a week it's probably better to return him to the wild so he won't starve.
