Leah and Ricky try eating crickets with Stefan Gates from Gastronuts

Cannot play media. Sorry, this media is not available in your territory.

A world food expert is calling on people to eat insects to help save the planet - so Ricky and Leah decided to try some!

Researchers found that farming creepy crawlies produces far less greenhouse gases than livestock like cows.

So Ricky and Leah asked Stefan Gates from Gastronuts to show them how loads of things we already eat have insects in them!

And then it was time for our presenters to chomp a tasty cricket...!
