Eggs for all

This factsheet describes the nutritional benefits of eggs for key target populations. Eggs are among the best food sources to improve diet quality in infants, as they contain nutrients which help brain development and physical growth.

They are also beneficial for pregnant and lactating women, helping babies to grow and enhancing nutritional content of breast milk.
