In an effort to encourage healthy breakfasts for families across the country, Salma Hayek is working to kick off a new campaign that will emphasize starting every morning with a breakfast that includes milk.

The Mexican native said, “…the eggs of these little ants, fried, are amazing, with a little guacamole. And the worms… there are many, many different recipes for these.”
Adding that worms, ant eggs and grasshoppers are excellent sources of protein, she continued, “The little grasshoppers, they have a smoky flavor to them. I think it’s the way they cook them, and it’s really good.” (more…)
