greedy birds

The morning feed during Mon-Fri that I provide is about 15-20 worms in a tin which is beneath a hanging basket mesh and taken by robins and blue tits, with a separate tin open for usual feeding by the local blackbirds.

At this time of year, during the weekend when at home, should I provide several more feeds for them?

They seem to queue up when they know we are in the house, but I don't want to overfeed them if they are just being greedy.

During the nesting season when they are clearly feeding chicks, I keep them topped up during the day, but don't want to make them un-necessarily reliant on the mealworms too early in the year if not recommended.
