Re: Confused about eggs

This book is a great resource food guidelines. It's been my baby food bible for years.
She (Ruth Yaron) and most pedis recommend no egg whites until after a year old. For allergies, yes, but also because egg whites have the similar protein structure as milk (and other dairy), which is hard for little tummies to digest (hence, no cow's milk until after one year old). Same concept.
Egg yolks do have cholesterol, but at a year old, hardly a concern. It's got lot so good fat in it, too, for those growing brains.
