  • Not at all. My daughter just truned 2 and she has been eating and loving them since she was around 1 or so. Her docs say they are great for her.

  • I was told that I could start feeding my son eggs at his 9 month check up. He loves eggs, which is good because he doesn't really like meat, so at least this way he is getting his protein.

  • Not at all. As long as it is not a choking hazard (cut it up), eggs are fine for toddlers.

  • my daughter looooves scrambled eggs and I make egg salad often! If they eat it and it's not junk-- thank your lucky stars!!!

  • Eggs are good for toddlers. Like any other person you have to limit their egg intake because of the cholesterol but aside from that they're a good source of protein, vitamins B A D and E, and iodine (required for bone health) and zinc (for healing and infection fighting)

    I personally hate eggs, lol. I think they're disgusting but my daughter has them occasionally for breakfast (even though the smell makes me yak)
