Egg consumption+ START A PARENT TALK
Hi my son is 3yrs 2mths and he's prone to respiratory congestion during winter. People say if he consumes egg its good for him since I am vegetarian we've not given him eggs till now. Can I start giving him eggs at this age? will he be able to take it without causing any allergies ?

Hi Dipti! Does your child have a history of allergy to food especially egg? If yes u could consult your doctor. If no,try giving a spoonful or so and wait for a day or two to see how does his system react to it. Egg is a powerhouse of nutrients. They are a great source of protein,fat, vitamins, minerals , raise good cholesterol and other healthier nutrients. Dipti, I believe there is no harm giving it a shot knowing it's nutritional value as vegetarian diet mostly lacks all these nutrients provided by eggs. Having said that, I would again tell you to be cautious in case of any history of allergy realted to food and take doc's advise. Hope this helps!
