Ok, so what does that mean? Free eggs for all Nigerians that go to shop at the supermarket today? 😀
Yea, right. I wish. So what does it mean to celebrate World Egg Day?
I suppose it’s an awareness by the WHO to encourage and enlighten people on the importance of egg consumption. Everybody should eat eggs, children in particular because eggs are not just good to eat but very nutritious. So good are eggs for nutrient health that the World Health Organisation, WHO, recommends that every healthy individual should eat one egg daily for optimal health.
Latest data released by UNICEF shows that about 1.7 million Nigerian children under the age of five, are severely and acutely malnourished, accounting for 10 percent of the global total of malnourished children. Unfortunately, I believe my children also fall in this category. How do I get them to eat eggs? Any takers?
But really, eggs are a very good source of protein for growth while also curbing your appetite for finger foods. It also repairs damaged tissues in the body, thereby encouraging a naturally younger you. So why not give it a go today!
