Use crickets for better nutrition
The Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology parter in the GREEiNSECT project has urged Kenyans to embark on cricket farming to improve nutrition and food security.
Vice chancellor Mabel Imbuga said JKUAT researchers have studied the insects and aim to promote and upscale their farming. She said crickets have been proved to be a nutritious delicacy and the university’s researchers use it to prepare “appetising” cakes.
