Crickets feed in a box used for reproduction in San Jose, June 16, 2015. Students of the University of Costa Rica's Food Technology School have developed two projects-larva patties made of plantain and mealworm larvae, and cookies made of powdered crickets, to be presented in an competition held by the U.S. Institute of Food Technologists (IFT) in July. The projects aim to help children in rural communities in Costa Rica's Northern Zone and also to be used to feed children with malnutrition problems in Haiti, local media reported.
