Show Notes

Grass hoppers, locusts, meal worms, bamboo worms and crickets- what do they all have in common? Not only do they have amazing nutritional value being a great source of protein and micronutrients, these insects are widely available and low cost- financially and on the environment. In food insecure locations, edible bugs can all play a major role in preventing malnutrition in children and pregnant women. Today we are lucky enough to be speaking with Mariangela and Rudi from Bugs for life, about their planned work in Benin, West Africa where they will be involved with social and scientific research which will centre on finding out more about the variety of insects eaten, their role in local diets and their cultural importance. To share with us about the project we would like to welcome to the show Mariangela and Rudi.
