Bug eating

A group of Discovery Academy students set up a bug tasting table Tuesday at the Madison Area Technical College to promote the addition of bugs in diets. The students explained that the bugs are rich in nutrients and are much better for the environment than other foods currently in diets. The group set out multiple bowls of differently seasoned mealworms and crickets for passersby to try.
