What I do with food is measure out the daily portion that my dog gets and then feed him that throughout the day. It helps to keep me from over feeding him. You can try doing that, and since your boy is a puppy I'd be feeding him 3x a day now till he is a couple months older then you can switch to 2x a day if that's what you want or continue 3x a day.
To switch his food what you do is over the course of a week slowly remove some of the old food and replace it with the new food. For example, if you were feeding him 1 cup of food per serving the first day you'd take out a teaspoon of the old food and add a teaspoon of the new food, next day you'd do two teaspoons, following day 1/8th cup and so on till you have fully transitioned him to the new food. If his stomach gets upset then stop at whatever point you are in the transition and give him time to adjust before starting back up.
Don't feel bad about making the mistake, we all make them, just enjoy your girl and treasure those puppy moments, they grow out of them way to fast.
