Over the past few weeks, we have had counseling sessions for mothers and it's hard to believe the abundant information pumped into these mothers that are so untrue and can be dangerous
A case scenario is a particular mother including two others who were told to feed their babies who were less than a year old with raw egg beaten with infant formula milk because they were not gaining weight as they should for their age.
RAW EGGS for babies...Safe or Dangerous?
Raw eggs should NEVER be given to babies beaten in a glass of milk or in any other form whatever.
it is often believed that drinking a glass of milk mixed with raw egg increases immunity and strengthens the body. In fact, many body builders have been known to drink glasses of milk with raw eggs, but never should such mix be fed to babies, children and pregnant women.
Raw and undercooked eggs can sometimes harbour salmonella bacteria and can lead to salmonella food poisoning if eaten.
Remember...babies' immunity isn't as strong as adults'
How do you feed egg to babies?
Eggs to be fed to babies must be well cooked, hard-boiled- if this is done, the heat will kill any bacteria, such as salmonella thus protecting babies from contacting salmonella infections as most salmonella infections have been associated with eating raw eggs, eggs with runny yolks and foods made from them.
