A primary school in the Netherlands has begun to feed insects and ‘mealworms’ to children as a part of a teaching program that is focused on “sustainability” and “behavioral changes” for the “still-open minded children.”
The De Octopus school in the province of Overikssell in the Netherlands is one of 100 schools throughout the region that is participating in these types of teaching programs.
Primary school students in the Netherlands were shown the alternative to eating meat, insects.
Many have contended that it is part of a larger agenda by Klaus Schwab and the World Economic Forum (WEF), a group which advocates for the consumption of insects as a replacement for meat.
“WEF agenda in full force: Hundreds of schools in The Netherlands have started a campaign introducing 10-12 y/o kids to mealworms and insects as a ‘sustainable’ meat substitute. The goal is to bring about ‘behavioral changes through unprejudiced children,'” political commentator Eva Vlaardingerbroek said.

“The WEF agenda. This is not food for humans. Insects also contain substances that we cannot digest and our farmers who produce beautiful food [would have to go]. Get rid of this crazy agenda,” one person commented.
According to the WEF, “insect farming for food and animal feed could offer an environmentally friendly solution to the impending food crisis.”
The Schwab-led group also claims that “our consumption of animal protein is the source of greenhouses gas [sic.] and climate change.”
“Insects are an overlooked source of protein and a way to battle climate change,” the WEF asserts. “The consumption of insects can offset climate change in many ways.”
“Most of us aren’t accustomed to regarding insects as food. But, the nutritional difference between sources of protein is relatively small. For instance, plant proteins lack some essential amino acids that animal proteins possess, but the major differences between insect and other sources of protein exist largely in the cultural and environmental realm.” – Statement on the World Economic Forum (WEF) website
The World Economic Forum is committed to publishing a wide array of opinions,” the WEF website asserts.
Farmers in the Netherlands made worldwide news when they protested in August against the drastic nitrogen use cuts, as such a cut would lead to a catastrophic decrease in farming production or total shutdown.
The Dutch are in the news again, and this time for is the implementation of part of Klaus Schwab’s WEF agenda.
