Crickets are good as long as they are appropriately dusted and gut loaded as for any other species of lizard. In addition to insects Phelsuma sp will eat fruit and nectar in the wild. They will typically wait until fruit is overripe which can be sticky in your house, so baby food is a great alternative. Mango, peach, or banana baby food will be devoured by most day geckos. Place a small amount in a shallow dish within the cage and he will find it on his own. Ideally this should be in addition to the crickets rather than instead of them. I have also heard of breeders using the Repashy Crested Gecko Diet for day geckos but have never tried it myself.

Stick with gut loaded crickets and a little baby food here and there and you should have a happy gecko.
