Those of us who lean libertarian oppose governments picking and choosing winning businesses by way of regulation. So a relaxation of regulations is always welcome. In the EU the regs against bugs in food haven't really been deregulated, merely unified. See New EU rules put insects on the menu:
Under previous rules on new types of food (the so-called novel foods regulation, which governs products mostly unknown to Europeans before 1997, such as quinoa), it was unclear whether producers could market whole insects for human consumption, rather than just insect wings, for example. National governments also had to green-light food made from insects, splintering regulations across the bloc as Italy outlawed insect burgers while the Netherlands didn’t.
In my neck of the woods idea bugs as food was something one might consider in an extreme food shortage. During normal times it takes a certain amount of sophistication to actively seek out bugs to eat. But hey, if you like 'em, eat 'em.
