I guess they'd be harmless enough ground down to a fine powder / side ingredient.
But I hope to never see intact bugs for sale in a supermarket. Yuck!
I would not mind, but our local sensitivities would obviously not make it viable in the short to medium term.
We are too "precious" to buy fish with a head on, or meat that reminds us it is from a cadaver.
If we were not acting so previous, maybe we would act more "aware"...
We should not "trick" the next generation into eating things that we do not allow them to face-up to. A child has a right to know that what they put in their stomach is a cadaver, and a right to be educated to either accept and embrace it, or reject it. In an age-appropriate manner.
If you are not ready as a teenager to kill a hen, and feather it, then why are you eating it?
