Eggs are an amazing way to start the day, for every member of the family (except the pet, of course).
Did you know that an egg contains 6 grams of protein? That’s quite a bit more than any other breakfast option, and as you know protein helps to sustain the energy through the day.
Eggs are also have at least 11 different vitamins and minerals as well Omega-3 and antioxidants. For more information about the nutrition of eggs, head over to the I Love Eggs website!
The New Zealand Nutrition Foundation notes that if you are generally in good health you can enjoy eggs as often as you like as part of a normal and healthy, balanced diet.
I often start my day with a couple of poached eggs on toast, and my kids do the boiled eggs with toast. As I said above, because Eggs pack a protein punch, they help my kids to stay full for longer – which ultimately gives them more energy during the day.
My 4 year old is at Kindy and is always on the go, and my son, who is 2.5 years old, is a never-ending ball of energy. So they really do need a good start every day.
However cooking eggs can be a pain, because I never seem to be able to cook the perfect one! So I have done a bit of research, and have put together this super helpful printout on how to cook the perfect egg:
