Why are eggs so good for children?
Eggs contain Choline which is essential for normal functioning of all cells in the body, including those needed for metabolism, brain and nerve function and memory. Choline from eggs therefore helps to promote brain and memory development in infants and improves concentration levels for children at school.
Providing access to a source of high-quality protein, such as eggs helps boost the function of an individual’s immune system, providing improved natural disease resistance. Eggs are also a rich source of Vitamin A, Vitamin B12, and Selenium, which are all important for maintaining a healthy immune system.
