An egg a day makes the world a better place

As we approach another beautiful season to celebrate our little ones,we prepare our hearts and minds to make their day a very special one. In most countries, classes are cancelled on this day for the children, while they engage in various activities varying from carnivals, to charity events to raise funds for less privileged children.


In the spirit of celebration, we should note that the true celebration is in the daily value we add to the lives of our children, physically, emotionally and mentally. It is important to ensure that your child gets the daily and recommended 300mg dose of protein, which can be found richly in eggs.

As the popular saying goes, ‘An Apple a day keeps the Doctor away’, shouldn’t the same apply to eggs? An average large egg is said to contain:
• 78 Calories
• 6.3g Protein
• 5.3g Fat
• 1.6g Saturated Fat
• 212mg Cholesterol
All which are perfectly healthy for a growing child.

Here are some of the benefits as outlined by www.momjunction.com:

1. Complete Protein:
Eggs are a complete protein food. Each egg contains 6 grams of protein per serving. Proteins are the building blocks for a young body and are required for new cell generation and regeneration of cells. Eggs help kids grow bigger and stronger.

2. Eggs Contain Lutein And Zeaxanthin:
Eggs are an excellent source of Lutein and Zeaxanthin, which are essential for healthy eyes. They keep vision sharp and reduce the impact of macular degeneration. They also ensure the health of the retina.

3. Eggs Contain Choline:
Choline helps in building the membranes of the cells. It also important for the development of the brain. Choline is also responsible for the molecules of the brain which signal the nerves. 1 egg contains 100 mg of choline.

4. Eggs Contain Omega-3s:
Omega 3 are healthy fats found predominantly in fish. It also helps in early brain development and cognitive memory. Regular consumption of eggs can help delay the onset of arthritis and heart diseases as the kids mature into adults.

5. Eggs Are Replete With Vitamin D:
Eggs are an excellent source of vitamin D .Vitamin D is important for the bone health of growing kids. The egg is the only food-based source of vitamin D.

6. Eggs Help in Healthy Hair and Nails:
Eggs contain 9 essential amino acids, which help in the growth of healthy nails and hair for kids, since they are always chewing off their nails or breaking them. Eggs ensure faster regrowth.

With all these health benefits, it might be a good idea to start a poultry. However, the reason why feeding your children right not just in anticipation of children’s day, but generally, has come up this season, is because food items like Eggs are still seen as a luxury meal to some. Some children in Nigeria still eat eggs only occasionally even in the light of these health benefits.  It is advised to feed a child eggs at least four times in a week. Eggs also remain one of the cheapest forms of protein available in Nigeria at the moment ranging from N30 to N40 a piece.

Another recommendation is also the cooking process of the eggs in order for them to retain their healthy status. Boiling and poaching is highly recommended while frying should be done to the barest minimum.

Good news to all parents! There is no need to worry about the freshness of the eggs being consumed by your children, when using a top-notch poultry feed as Vital Feeds, the number one feed for healthy chickens. With Vital feeds the quality of the eggs being produced by the chickens would not be compromised.

So, in the spirit of ‘An Egg per day keeps the Doctor away’, parents should heed to this call and ensure that children eat at least 4 eggs per week.It is Children’s day and it is time to show them how much you care.

Once again, HAPPY CHILDREN’S DAY
