Egg-static about eggs?

Truth be told, eggs are a great source of vitamin D, A and B2, as well as protein and iodine. But it's important to store, handle, prepare, and eat them properly.

While there is no set limit on how many eggs you should eat, make sure you eat as varied a diet as possible.

Eating raw eggs or eggs with runny yolks can cause food poisoning, especially in pregnant women, babies and toddlers, as well as the elderly and the ill, but other than that eggs are good for you!

Always store your eggs in a cool, dry place, ideally in the fridge’s egg tray, away from other foods.
