New feeder - questions about Betta feeding

I got a EHEIM Everyday Fish Feeder Programmable Automatic Food Dispenser
From Amazon. I just set it up with the Betta pellets that I have been feeding my Betta, Jill.

I'm worried about over feeding and having too many pellets dropping into the tank. I have it set up with the smallest possible opening I could get and still let pellets out.

I usually only feed her 1-2 pellets a day. It is random when I feed her but it is usually once but sometimes twice a day. 99% of the time she eats both pellets... Though sometimes she doesn't see some of the pellets so I have to put 3-4 in before she will eat the two...

tl;dr how do I make sure I'm not over feeding her while I am gone? I have 2 weeks until my vacation.
I also don't want to drop too many pellets in there that she won't eat. How do I make sure of this?

P.S. The name I have above of the feeder is copied directly from Amazon so you can look it up from there or Google.
