Happy World Egg Day

October 14, 2011


Happy World Egg Day!  World Egg Day is celebrated annually on the second Friday in October.  Today is when the world celebrates and raises awareness about the
benefits of eggs.  World Egg Day was
first established in 1996 at the International Egg Commission’s conference in
Vienna.  Eggs have played a huge role in
feeding families around the world and thus they were given their own day of celebration.   They
are perfectly packaged by the chickens and affordable for many around the globe.   They have fantastic health benefits and are full of protein and vitamins.  They are a great source of choline for
developing brains and memory and have been proven to help prevent deteriorating eyesight due to macular degeneration.


Here are some ways that you and your family can celebrate
World Egg Day!
Eat eggs today.  You
can serve them at all meals of the day.
Get creative!
Participate in an Egg Hunt
Read stories about eggs.
Debate the age old question, which came first the chicken or
the egg.
Have an egg throwing contest.
Share World Egg Day with your friends.
