In Switzerland it has just passed into law that insects can be farmed and processed for food. Before you turn your nose up and dismiss it entirely, the eating of insects does have it’s benefits - they are a great source of protein and packed full of vitamins and minerals. They’re also a lot better for the environment, taking up less space and requiring less feeding than livestock meaning farmland and CO2 consumption would be considerably lower.

At present insects are not considered food in this country but with changes happening across the rest of Europe, we could soon follow suit.

What do you think, could you be persuaded to eat creepy crawlies?

@all: Insects: could you eat them?
