Did you know that Health Canada, the Canadian Paediatric Society, Dietitians of Canada and the Breastfeeding Committee for Canada now recommend introducing whole eggs’that’s both yolks and whites’to your baby starting at six months of age? Although it was previously believed that moms and dads should hold off introducing egg whites until babies were 12 months of age, experts now agree that introducing whole eggs at six months of age may actually help lower the chance of your baby developing an egg allergy.
