Nutritional Information

“Our health is our most valuable asset and like every other asset we have to invest in it. Food is the fundamental fuel for our body so we need to think about what we are eating and go for quality rather than quantity. Eggs are part of this solution. Eggs are the real deal when it comes to a superfood. They are full of essential vitamins and minerals. Everyone should eat eggs and the number you eat weekly depends on your lifestyle.”

– Prof Patrick Wall, Associate Professor of Public Health, UCD
