“Why not eat insects…?” questions Marcel Dicke in a Ted video. Several newspapers have also published articles on the subject and I have to say that it is rather convincing: fast growing, full of proteins, economical with cultivation low in carbon emissions. Kids (well, and adults, too!) make horrible faces when you mention eating worms to them, but it might become a reality for them in, let’s say 30 or 50 years. So in case they want to educate their palate at an early stage, they can start with the chocolate covered giant ants, the BBQ worm crisps or the Thai curry crickets. All available at Edible.com.
