Wholesome and rich in protein, eggs can help in regulating your child’s weight. An egg helps in building the growth of muscles and tissues of the body, that are essential for puberty and good adolescent health. Eggs should be boiled well and introduced in small quantities to young children. Eggs are a superfood for children and are packed with many nutrients such as phosphorus, complete protein, zinc, calcium, iron, selenium, vitamin A, vitamin B12, vitamin B6, vitamin D, vitamin E, vitamin K, riboflavin, and choline.
Chicken is a high-calorie and high-protein food for children and can help prevent malnutrition. It is also rich in phosphorus, an essential mineral that supports your teeth and bones, and benefits the kidney, liver, and the functioning of the entire central nervous system. It is also a great source of vitamin B12, a key nutrient for proper brain, nerves, and blood cell development, especially at early ages. Remember that chicken breasts are leaner than thighs and legs and that removing the skin is the best option because it’s rich in saturated fats and cholesterol.
