Change the milk for Lactol, it is easier to digest for them and more like the milk they'd get from their mother as a baby. While they may like the bread, it won't do much to build up a weak mouse. It sounds to me like they are ill, not just undernourished. Try plain cooked chicken/turkey, cooked egg, extra fatty seeds, mealworms, complete dog food on top of their mix. Make sure their water supply is working as it could also be dehydration. They may need a vet visit...
