In this episode, I’m sharing absolutely everything you could ever need, or want, to know about serving eggs to your baby and toddler! I go into the differences between various types of eggs on the market, the amazing nutritional properties of eggs, how and when to serve them to your babies and toddlers, and so much more!

Eggs are honestly my favourite food – if I could only eat one thing for the rest of my life, it would be eggs! There are so many benefits to them, nutritionally, plus they’re so easy to cook, and super versatile, so they’re a great way to add some variety into your weekly meal rotation. Listen in to get all the details, and a few new ideas on ways to safely serve them to your baby and toddler.
