my daughter is 5,5 years. i tell her eggs are not good for her little body, eggs come out of the ass of a chicken, she will get sick if she eats it but she still eats eggs when the father gives it to her. he is convinced eggs are not unhealthy.
does anybody have an idea what i can do/say to my child why not to eat eggs?
i can not say anything to the father, he loves animal products!!!! "we don't hurt the chickens when we eat eggs and the eggs are from a good home ..." is his answer.
the eggs of my husband come from a good home (from my parents chickens), he does not buy eggs from these kind of chickens.
thank you for your mail but i don't want a discussion about this, i want to know what i can say to my daughter.
Weren't aware it was from your parent's chickens. I meant no offense :)
You can go over Salmonella with her. Here's the details: http://www.webmd.com/food-recipes/food-poisoning/tc/salmonellosis-t...
Children are more prone to this than adults and the disease is mostly carried in Beef, poultry, milk, and eggs.
my parents have some battery hens, they were afwul and now are shining. my parents will not kill the chicken to eat, they can live there till they are very old, my father take care about these animals. on the moment they have no cock so the eggs are not fertilised (they had one).
all these animals have grass and place and earth to make a hole in the ground. so i can say the hens are well treated. the beaks are not cut of from the new hens, they are not running on roosters, they are not living in a cage.
so on that point it is ok but even than i would not eat the eggs.
i know my husband eat also eggs sometimes from an organic shop and i know even if the eggs are 'organic' it is a miserable life for these animals.
but like i said this is not the point for me to talk about. i want to go further.
my husband says some eggs, what's the problem? everybody is eating it!
yes you're right. i know we are not 'allowed' to have any animal. they all have the right to be free.
my husband says my daughter has the right to eat EVERYTHING.
but these animals have the right to be FREE.
Why does your husband buy eggs from an organic food store? Is he concerned for his health or does he believe that these eggs come from happy organic chicken?
Eggs have the highest amount of cholesterol of virtually any food. Eventually they will clog up your arteries, a process that starts in the early years of childhood.
aside from the cruelty and health issues they taste horrible ! always hated the way they tasted as a kid
Speaking as one who used to eat em by the gross (ha!), you're so right. They're not worth anything unless doctored up with all manner of spices.
I recommend you view the challenging but essential film at www.earthlings.com, alone first, definitely no children present.
Then you can decide if it would be helpful to your hubby, and what information to pass on to you youngling.
