For instance, one particular investigation revealed that kids aged 6 to 9 months who consumed one egg daily for 6 months reduced their risk of stunting by up to 47% compared to those who didn’t eat eggs. The risk of being underweight in the egg-consuming group was also reduced by 74%.
So, if children as young as 6 to 9 months can eat 1 egg daily, it’s possible that toddlers can, too. But then again, experts still haven’t set a limit, seeing that we need more studies about it.
Even though it might be okay, it’s not recommend to eat eggs daily.
Eggs are generally good for kids. But, even so, experts do not recommend daily egg consumption.
They explained that even if it may be safe to eat eggs daily, parents should focus on variety. It means that, while egg is a good source of protein, they should have other protein-rich foods in their diet as well. Examples of other protein-rich sources are fish, beef, chicken, pork, and even, nuts!
Variety in the diet ensures that your little one is getting as many nutrients that different foods can offer. Moreover, giving your toddler different foods helps them explore various food textures and flavors.
