Babies loves eggs – chicken eggs and quail eggs. I started feeding my 3 girls eggs as soon as they turned 1 year old. Baby still eats an egg a day, most of the time she feasts on free range chicken eggs. Each week, we consume 2-3 crates of eggs. We love eggs cook in any style and shape – fried, boiled, half boiled, omelette, curried, scrambled, poached, steamed, chawan mushi style, added into pancakes, french toast and the list goes.

Food For Thought :
(article extracted from http://www.healthdiaries.com/eatthis/10-health-benefits-of-eggs.html)
1. Eggs are great for the eyes. According to one study, an egg a day may prevent macular degeneraton due to the carotenoid content, specifically lutein and zeaxanthin. Both nutrients are more readily available to our bodies from eggs than from other sources.
2. In another study, researchers found that people who eat eggs every day lower their risk of developing cataracts, also because of the lutein and zeaxanthin in eggs.
3. One egg contains 6 grams of high-quality protein and all 9 essential amino acids.
4. According to a study by the Harvard School of Public Health, there is no significant link between egg consumption and heart disease. In fact, according to one study, regular consumption of eggs may help prevent blood clots, stroke, and heart attacks.
5. They are a good source of choline. One egg yolk has about 300 micrograms of choline. Choline is an important nutrient that helps regulate the brain, nervous system, and cardiovascular system.
6. They contain the right kind of fat. One egg contains just 5 grams of fat and only 1.5 grams of that is saturated fat.
7. New research shows that, contrary to previous belief, moderate consumption of eggs does not have a negative impact on cholesterol. In fact, recent studies have shown that regular consumption of two eggs per day does not affect a person’s lipid profile and may, in fact, improve it. Research suggests that it is saturated fat that raises cholesterol rather than dietary cholesterol.
8. Eggs are one of the only foods that contain naturally occurring vitamin D.
9. Eggs may prevent breast cancer. In one study, women who consumed at least 6 eggs per week lowered their risk of breast cancer by 44%.
10. Eggs promote healthy hair and nails because of their high sulphur content and wide array of vitamins and minerals. Many people find their hair growing faster after adding eggs to their diet, especially if they were previously deficient in foods containing sulphur or B12.
While waiting for my friend to pick up Sherilyn for ballet class just now, I saw an old man walking from the lobby to a school van parked outside the lobby. He looked like he was in his late 70s and he was hobbling. As he walked towards the school van, I told Sherilyn “oh no, I hope he’s not the school van driver. Look at him! He’s old and he could hardly walk properly” We were both staring at him and when he opened the driver’s seat door of the bus van to get inside, my jaw almost dropped. When he drove the van and reversed it, he almost knocked onto a nearby teflon hose. I was really shocked that some parents actually trust such an old man who looked senile and could barely walk properly to drive their kids to school!! Would you have the peace of mind to leave your child everyday in the hands of such an old and helpless man?
Cold therapy / Ice therapy or Cryotherapy is one of the most widely used treatment for treating acute sport injuries. It is cheap, easy to apply and highly effective too. Using cold therapy immediately after an injury can help minimize the amount of swelling. While cold therapy is very effective in reducing swells and pains, it can also be dangerous. If cold therapy devices or Cryotherapy are used too long, or at too cold of a temperature, it can result in serious injuries such as nerve damage, chronic pain, or frost bite.
