Should people include insects in their healthy diet?

Should people include insects in their healthy diet?

I strongly believe that insects should be in our healthy diet. I mean why not?
Even though insects look disgusting if you try it you might have different thoughts about it. Insects are good because it doesn't cost lots to harvest.

Firstly, if you do not think you would like any insects, then believe it or not but lots of insects taste like other food, like crickets taste like popcorn, mealworms taste like roasted peanuts, scorpions taste like beef jerky, Tarantula legs taste like chicken wings and Sago Grub taste like bacon!

Secondly, if you don't like the taste of the insects look up recipes on google and maybe it will taste better. You can cook insects differently, you can fry them, freeze them and you can make them into powder.

Thirdly, insects are really good for you! Most insects like crickets have more Vitamins, Minerals and Protein than most animals like chicken, pig and cow. 100 grams of crickets contains 121 calories. Which only 49.5 calories come from fat. Insects are also loaded with iron, vitamins B1 and B3.

I hope that you changed your mind into eating insects. I really think that if you try it you might like it!

  1. Hi Aashna,
    Great persuasive writing, although I may not get to eating crickets just yet! I agree, other food choices are good for your health and I believe that one day we will be eating these foods like we eat any others and this speech really shows that you know that.

    Keep the great work up!, Mia.
