Egg chicks

Suitable from 6 months

Egg chicks
We made these cute egg chicks the other day and my son was so excited, so I had to share. This is not a real recipe as such but inspiration for a snack that I’m sure your kids will love as well! How will you be serving your eggs this Easter? 🙂
Note: Eggs are the second most common food allergy in kids. Medical experts used to advise that babies under 12 months should not be given egg whites, as they are more likely to trigger an allergic reaction than the yolk. More recent studies have shown though that there is no benefit in delaying the introduction of egg whites to your baby’s diet. The current recommendation is that babies can be given whole eggs – yolks and whites – from 6 month of age, as long as they are no known food allergies in the family. Be sure to consult your pediatrician if in doubt!

Recipe tips
For babies, toddlers and pregnant women (or anyone with a compromised immune system) the current recommendation is that eggs should be completely cooked to avoid the risk of salmonella. Use organic eggs if you can. If you prefer the carrot beaks to be cooked, throw them in the water with the eggs for around 3-4 minutes.
