Nourish your child's emotional health

Go Ahead. “Get Egg on Your Face.”

Go Ahead. “Get Egg on Your Face.”

 

If there is one whole food most children love; it is eggs.  For good reason, they are delicious.  What you may not know is how nutrient packed these little gems are.  Eggs contain vitamins B6, B9, and B12.  Without these essential vitamins, your child’s brain begins to feel agitated and sad. He/she may have trouble focusing while feeling lethargic throughout the day.

Not only are eggs an excellent source of choline, magnesium and omega-3’s, they contain tryptophan, which is needed for your brain’s mood-regulating neurotransmitters.  And if it couldn’t get any better, pastured eggs are one of the few foods sources, which naturally contain vitamin D.

At the risk of sounding like Forest Gump, take those eggs and boil ’em, fry ’em, bake ’em, scramble ’em, poach ’em and then eat ’em!  Improve your family’s mood while “getting egg on their face.”
