When can babies eat eggs?
Eggs are not just delicious but are a rich source of protein. They can be introduced to babies around 8-9 months. But do ensure to introduce the white portion first to check for allergy and then the yolk. Once you are assured your baby does not have any allergy to egg, you can feed the whole egg for full nutritional benefits.
Choosing the right kind of eggs for your baby...
Most chickens are feed GMO corns, injected with growth hormones so that they big and fat quickly and are able to quickly produce eggs. So it is advised to purchase organic eggs, produced in farms that provide enough space to chickens to move around and keep them healthy without the growth hormones.
