There’s no way you’ll get me to tuck into a plate of insects

Have your say

Apparently the UN has suggested that we all need to be eating more insects.

Crickets can, seemingly, provide much the same protein as eating beef.

I didn’t quite get to the part which set out the quantities of crickets needed to equal a cow because, frankly, I was already baulking at the whole idea.

But the UN reckons that not only should we be noshing down on a delicious plate of caterpillars, we should also be getting busy farming them as well.

I don’t actually eat the insects of the sea – lobsters and crabs and the like.

So there is pretty much no way that I will ever be tucking into those of the land or sky.

Well, not when steak’s on the menu anyway.
