A Mother Is Feeding Her Baby Crickets And Says She Plans On Adding Worms, Grasshoppers And Ants To Her Baby’s Meals

Food writer Tiffany Leigh wrote a piece in which she said she is feeding her baby cricket products and plans to introduce other creatures such as worms, ants, and grasshoppers in the future.

Leigh explained that part of her motivation for adding crickets into meals was to save money.

“I decided to add crickets into mealtimes with my 18-month-old baby. To be honest, it was not only adventurousness that compelled me to do it but practicality, too — I wanted to cut down on our family’s grocery bill,” she explained.

Adding cricket products into their eating habits has resulted in decreased food costs, Leigh noted.

“With a baby, our food costs have spiked to about $250 to $300 a week. To supplement the rising prices, I decided to get Cricket Puff snacks, Cricket Protein Powder, and Whole Roasted Crickets from Entomo Farms. Because I’ve started rotating these insects with more traditionally expensive proteins like beef, chicken, and pork, I’ve managed to cut my bill down to about $150 to $200 a week,” she wrote.
