Eat insects for protein, EU suggests

Insects could soon form a part of our diets if the European Commission gets its way.
It is offering £2.65m to the research institute with the best proposal for investigating "insects as novel sources of proteins".
According to one study, grasshoppers offer 20 per cent protein and just 6 per cent fat. Crickets are said to be high in calcium, termites rich in iron, and giant silkworm moth larvae are a good source of riboflavin.
