hi everyone

is there a limit on how many eggs a baby can have?

my 7 month DD loves eggy bread and although I don't plan on giving it to her everyday, I wondered if she was only allowed a certain amount of egg per week??

thanks smile

No it's fine. As long as the eggs are cooked through

I'd disagree Mrsmartin1984 - one of dd's favourite foods from 6 months old was poached or boiled eggs to dip her toast fingers in to smile.

Runny eggs are fine. If you're buying eggs from the UK and they are British Lion stamped, there should be almost zero risk of samonella poisioning - see here

My 10 month old goes through eggs like they are going out of fashion. Ultimate quick food - heat butter in a pan, add frozen peas & sweet corn, cook for a couple of minutes, chuck an egg in and hey presto - lovely vegetable scrambled egg :-) takes 4min start to finish.

Same here gintastic - I love eggs of any variety (boiled ones cooking as i type) and DD does too. They're very versitile and the yolk is extremely good for babies with developing guts.

There's 1g of salt in something like six eggs. Just in case it gets really excessive!
