One-year-old girl devours live worms like it is candy

Footage shows Mayumi Faith, a one-year-old girl, overly enjoying munching on live worms like it is candy in Surigao del Sur, Philippines on April 4. Her approving parents even laid out a whole plate of the creepy crawlies for her to bite into at lunchtime. Proud father Juniel, 28, said the toddler learned to eat the worms when she was only eight months old. He said: "My children are excited every time we get the worms. They liked the taste even if we don’t cook the insects, especially my youngest Mayumi. They are very healthy." Coconut worms are a popular dish in some rural parts of the Philippines. They are high in protein and safe for humans to eat.
