Is it bad for them to have one every day? My daughter loves them. I would think they are only bad for adults, what is the truth to this?

Actually an egg a day is very good for young children. Sometimes its hard to get our kids to eat enough protein and if they like eggs its a very good source. New research has proven that the cholesterol in eggs should not be a source of worry unless you are all ready on a restricted diet. The other health benefits of eating eggs out weigh the risks that was thought in the past. Use cooking sprays in stead of oil or butter when preparing eggs for your toddler. School aged children also benefit from protein based breakfasts over sugary cereals as they do not tend to "crash" before lunch.
