Hey moms! Did you know that eggs are not only good for you, but they’re also good for your little one, too? Whether you’re a new or expecting mom, eggs are a compact, natural source of vitamins and minerals, plus they support brain health at every age and stage – including little ones!
According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, eggs contain the nutrient choline, which helps support brain health. Just one egg contains approximately 147 mg of choline – about 100% of your baby’s daily needs. And, if you’re pregnant, one large egg can supply up to 25% of your own choline needs.
Thanks to choline, eggs are a great first food for babies. Even introducing eggs around 4 to 6 months of age can help reduce a child’s risk of developing an egg allergy later in life. By providing foods such as eggs at a young age, children can be taught the best ways to maintain a healthy and nutrient-rich eating style.
Whether you’re looking for recipes to fit your busy lifestyle, kick-start healthy eating habits for the whole family, or introduce new foods for your little one, we’ve got you covered!
