Eggs have the potential to control cardiovascular disease and diabetes, especially among the elderly, said the coordinator of Ghana’s National Campaign Secretariat, Mrs. Comfort Kyerewa Acheampong.
She explained that the choline in eggs, among other essential vitamins and minerals, also prevented the risk of strokes as well as control the rise in blood sugar significantly, since it fought against crave crazy.
“Taking one egg a day was ideal for all ages to improve upon brain function and smoothen skin whilst fighting malnutrition in children and promoting total wellness.”
“Children after six months of exclusive breastfeeding could have eggs incorporated in their diets, and pregnant mothers, youth and aged population should feed on whole egg for proper development,” she added.
The coordinator called for proper storage and handling of the egg, the need to avoid overcooking, adding, “eggs only take between two to three minutes to cook.”
