Insects absolutely have nutritious value such as protein. In addition, they also contain iron and loads of calcium and phosphorus -- not to mention vitamins such as that which is found in your daily multivitamin. Eating bugs is actually very common; there is an endless amount of bugs that it is perfectly okay to eat. In many countries, people continue to eat them to this day. Some examples are grasshoppers, field crickets, grubs and cicadas. Many people do not realize that they eat a small amount of bugs each day.
