I was watching WGME at 7 Monday night and they did this story on a restaurant in Portland that was serving up insects like crickets, mealworms, ants and more at Baobao Dumpling House. 

The insect meals are not a permanent menu item and were only available Monday evening, for now.

Co-owner Zachary Pratt teamed up with Entosense, whose mission is to make edible insects part of the daily diet of North America, to show Mainers there is more nutritional value in bugs than we think. For example, grass hoppers have more calcium than milk, more iron than spinach and even more omega 3s than salmon!

Check out the full story from WGME below.
