Tips:
Important tip when starting eggs for first time:
  • If you are offering egg for the first time, offer in the morning (for breakfast) or lunch to help with digestion.
  • Never try egg for the first time after 4pm or at night as this can lead to indigestion, vomiting or allergies.
Allergies in babies:
note: -> If you like to offer for babies less than 12 months, make omlette with the yolk (yellow part) and serve..
-> do not offer ‘ egg white ‘ to babies less than 12 months, as it can lead to severe allergies for most babies..-> Egg allergy :
some babies are allergic to nuts, egg etc.,
watch for unusual signs or symptoms – like runny nose, skin reactions (hives, swelling, redness),(rash around mouth, nose, eyes ) diarrhea, nausea, vomiting or shortness of breath.-> Sometimes the reactions can be severe, please seek medical assistance immediately.
