Presenter eats insects live on air

Newsround presenter Leah Boleto had an unusual breakfast live on air after eating insects during an interview.

She was chatting to bug expert Dr Jenny Josephs about tests currently being carried out by EU scientists to see if insect eating could be good for people.

After talking through the pros and cons Dr Josephs then brought out a bowl of oven baked mealworms and crickets.
