Q.

Eggs - 3 year old

My 3 year old son absolutely loves the white part of a boiled egg. Is it healthy to give him a boiled egg' s white everyday?

If your son is only eating the egg white every day this should be fine. This will not cause problems such as raised cholesterol which could result from eating whole eggs especially the yolk every day.
