Seed Starting Jiffy Mix...OK for pre-germinated seeds via Baggie?

OK, now I realize Jiffy Mix has not really any nutrients but supposedly is good for seed starting. I had to get it because I wanted something sterile. Can I used it to put the sprouted seeds in? They will still require time to unfold their seed leaves, so forth, which I'm sure they can do in that mix right?
I do have fertilizer, Vigoro 24-8-16 I think, can I use 1/4 strength when I water after they get their first or second set of true leaves? Can I use 1/4 strength with every watering or do I use even less? Thanks!
