none, they eat aphids

Well, actually...

Ladybugs also like whiteflies, mealybugs, scales, mites, and such soft-bodied insects as fruitworm, cabbage moth, and tomato hornworm.

As far as household foods...

A way to encourage beneficial insects is to spray a mixture called "Wheast" in your garden. It is usually a mixture of yeast, whey or sugar, and water and it is an attractive food for Ladybugs and Green Lacewings. You can either make your own, or purchase a mix. A basic wheast recipe is as follows:

1 part sugar

1 part yeast

Mix sugar and yeast with water to make a thin paste. Apply to leaves. Or, add more water to apply by spray bottle.

However, they also seem to like soda (Coke Classic to be specific); I have fed many ladybugs that have come indoors soda and they really seem to like it.
