Your top 5 egg questions answered

When can I start giving my baby eggs?

Eggs should be introduced early on in weaning from around six months as they are a good source of protein and contain many different vitamins and minerals essential for growth and development including vitamin D, folate and omega 3 fatty acids. Introducing eggs early in the weaning process can also help protect babies against developing egg allergy, so get cracking!

Can my baby eat runny eggs?

Quite simply, yes! Eggs are one of the most nutritious foods available for your baby and British Lion eggs are approved by the Food Standards Agency to be served runny to babies, young children and the elderly. They can be eaten runny when you start weaning at around six months, but only so long as they have the British Lion stamp on. For more information visit egginfo.co.uk

Are runny eggs better for my baby?

Whichever way you cook eggs, the nutritional value doesn’t change. But fully cooked eggs can sometimes end up a little rubbery making them harder to swallow for baby. Lightly cooked scrambled egg or a soft-boiled egg can be far more palatable for babies. Dippy eggs and toast soldiers or omelettes are also great for baby-led weaning.

What if my baby has an egg allergy?

A small number of babies are allergic to eggs, although many will outgrow this allergy in later life. Emerging research has shown that parents may reduce the risks of their baby having an egg allergy by giving them when they are weaning from six months. This introduction of eggs at this stage is said to provide the best chance of creating tolerance - when the immune system accepts the egg without reaction.

How many eggs should my baby be eating in a week?

There isn’t a recommended limit on the number of eggs your baby can eat. However, once you’ve introduced eggs at around six months, eggs should then be included regularly (for example, at least once per week) to ensure that your baby continues to tolerate them. It’s important that babies experience a varied diet with everything in moderation. The great thing about eggs is that they are incredibly versatile, so you can serve them on their own, or use them in cooking.
