Do you give egg for your 18 months baby as their everyday menu?

How many egg do you give in a day? Is it healthy to do so? For us grown ups, we should limit consuming eggs, since it got high cholesterol. What about 18 mobths baby?

  • My son had atleast 1 egg a day since he was about 8 months old. The guidelines would be the same as for adults, moderation is key. He went through a kick where he ate 3 fried eggs a day for about a month and his doctor said that was fine because it was just a phase.

  • From the time my daughter turned one, until she was 3 or 4, she had a hard boiled egg mixed with hummus every day. This is a nutritional powerhouse.

  • Eggs contain compounds that stimulate brain growth...the same with fish

  • Yes, eggs are very nutritional. Well, I guess my conclusion is that it's okay for toddlers to eat egg one a day, but as they grow bigger, I should reduce it gradually to adults health portion. Right, moms?!
