Not exactly true, earthworms are not as nutritious as many of the grubs 
found in fallen acorns and under leaves in wooded areas.

Meal worms can easily kill all your amphibians on two levels, first they 
have way too high a chiten (Sp.?) level in their shells and they have been 
known to literaly eat their way out of a creature that ate them! If you do 
use meal worms KEEP THEM OUT OF THE TANK untill they molt then feed the 
soft white meal worms to your amphibians.
