Make sure you use a litter that isn't sawdust-based, like CareFresh, as this doesn't irritate the rats' delicate respiratory systems. You can also then 'scatter-feed' by sprinkling the rat food in amongst the litter to recreate natural foraging behaviour. Carefresh is virgin wood pulp, not sawdust.
