Year 5/6 students from Brunswick South Primary School will present Why We Should Eat Insects to students in other year levels (F-6). All students at the school will have an opportunity to try some corn chips made with cricket protein.
There will be a follow-up event to this in 2 weeks time called The Big Bug Bake Off. The Big Bug Bake Off is a cooking competition, followed up by a parents afternoon tea. Parents are invited to make a sweet or savoury dish that has ants, crickets, mealworms or crickets in it (provided by the school) and enter it into the competition. Judges will taste the food and choose 3 winners.
The rest of the food will be served to parents at an afternoon tea. Money raised from the afternoon tea will be donated to Food Band Australia.
