In Perspective: The U.N. is Out of Touch
In England, schools have another problem—junk food smuggling. Although schools promote healthy eating, it has created a black market for junk food. Children are refusing to give up their eating habits and instead have been smuggling, not guns or drugs, but chocolate, potato chips and carbonated beverages. The children are buying the contraband in bulk and taking it to school to sell.
These examples show how tastes for food drive demand, whether the food items are legal or not. So, it’s really hard to believe that there will ever be a market for eating insects.
Perhaps if the insects are fried or sugar-coated they might gain appeal, but the idea of eating insects is not appetizing to many, at least in the industrialized world. The U.N.’s suggestion is not likely to take off any time soon and shows just how out of touch it is with how food choices are made.
