Would you eat bugs served at your school cafeteria?

It sounds like a joke question you would ask someone but in the past 15 years or so I've been hearing this pitched here and there that bugs will be the future of our meals. No more chicken tendies, no more grilled salmon, no more beef for hamburgers either, just bugs.

As it turns out, it wasn't just a mere suggestion -- they are no introducing it in schools as a first trial study.

Eat Bugs To Save The Planet

If you find the above picture appealing and you live in the UK, good news -- the World Economic Forum (WEF) are giving what they promised by testing its first phase of bug meals in four primary schools in Whales.

But why?

WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY

Well, as disgusting as it may sound, some countries already have it as part of their custom, but only some insects. In fact, you could always eat some insects (properly prepared) in the US in some niche places. Unfortunately for them, their niche might become commonplace in the future. The idea behind it is to be "better for the environment". These scientists claim that we should get used to the idea of eating bugs because of global warming and the cost of raising animals like poultry to full-size is a lot.


My rebutal? I say hogwash! I'd rather sacrifice one animal for several meals than to sacrifice 2 dozen just for one. It's sad enough that an animal has to die for our hunger but that's just nature. Plus look at those insects, disgusting! lol I guess there will be a new term developed for people like me who will refuse to eat bugs and I'm sure it will be used in a very deragatory manner in order to influence more people to eat it as the norm.

If people like Bill Gates wants to tackle pollution, he could alt+ctrl+del himself and save the planet from him using his private jet everywhere. There's no way I'm ever going to be eating bugs like it's a normal thing. "Yeah, that's because you're a boomer and can't adapt to changes" and to that I say BS. I'm always at the front of innovation. Plus, I don't know why people over 20 are called boomers anyway xD

Impossible burgers are disgustingly made (watch a how its made video), and there is no evidence that it has long-term positive health effects for you but many schools have introduced it as a part of their eating curriculum. Bugs are probably a million times healthier but it's still ethically gray area. They are testing it on children 5 - 11 years old, I hope the project fails. I don't know if it's how it used to be but when Obama took office, they set a universal law for alls chools that accepted federal funding where students weren't allowed to eat their own home-brought food that wasn't part of their list. If it wasn't part of their list, the teachers / principals would get power hungry and throw away the child's meal.

There hasn't been a better time to start home schooling and eating bugs to replace meat is another good reason why.

So tell me, why would you eat / not eat bugs instead of meat? Are you a vegetarian? Would you be a Bugetarian? (maybe someone who eats only bugs and veggies?) Is this a step in the right direction or do you think it's a step backwards? Do you think this will eventually be mandated where meat is outlawed except for the nobility class or do you think that it will always be the norm?
