Bet you didn’t know that an Egg a Day is Ok? Well you soon will if you listen to the radio at all. A 2 week campaign began today to encourage us all to eat more eggs.
The objective of the campaign is to maintain the high consumer awareness of the recommended daily consumption allowance for eggs, in addition to increasing consumer understanding of the Quality Mark.
I wasn’t aware that there was a “recommended daily consumption allowance” for eggs? That’s a bit of an odd phrase though. I’ve heard of Recommended Daily Allowance before but never consumption allowance.
I always thought eggs weren’t particularly healthy but the Irish Heart Foundation say that a healthy individual can have up to 7 eggs a week, so that’s news to me.
If you’re in need of some eggy recipes the eggs.ie website is probably a good place to start
