You can put your hand in the water at feeding time, not making swift movements. Once they get used to your hand being in the water they will know when the hands in its feeding time. Some of my fish took onto this very quickly and some still wont eat out of my hand. Lots of my fish attack my hand when im cleaning the tank.
