Eggs are considered nature’s little vitamin capsule. Discover what makes these little gems truly exceptional.
What Are The Health Benefits?
Eggs have been given the Heart Foundation tick of approval. They’re power-packed with ten vitamins and minerals, omega-3 fats plus the highest quality protein in our food supply. Just one egg provides almost half the average protein requirement for a 1 – 3 year old.
Eggs have a mild taste and are quite easy to prepare. With a long shelf life in the fridge, they will last for a week when hard boiled – enabling you to plan ahead for snacks and sandwich fillings.
Eggs are very versatile. Apart from poaching, frying or soft boiling and serving with toast fingers, you can use eggs to make French toast, omelettes, or pancakes and pikelets served with fresh fruit. For lunch, enjoy an egg and lettuce sandwich, in sushi, fried rice or use in quiche, a frittata or fritters.
