CEDAR KNOLLS, N.J., March 1, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Does your baby's initials include the letters E.B.? You may be in luck! In celebration of National Nutrition Month in March, Eggland's Best (EB) is giving families the chance to win a year's supply of EB eggs through the EB Baby Sweepstakes, setting up babies with good nutrition from the start. From now through the end of April 2021, parents can enter the promotion at www.EBFamilySweeps.com if their baby is born between January 1, 2020 and April 30, 2021, and has the initials E.B., either as baby's first and middle initial or first and last initial.
The EB Baby Sweepstakes aims to educate families on the value of eggs as a nutritious choice for baby's first food. The 2020 Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee's Scientific Report recently issued recommendations for birth to 24 months old and specifically recommended eggs as an important first food for infants and toddlers, as well as for pregnant and lactating women. The Advisory Committee also shared a new recommendation based on the latest research revealing early introduction of eggs to babies who are developmentally ready to eat solid foods may help reduce a child's risk of developing an egg allergy.*
"Eggland's Best is committed to empowering families to make more nutritious choices, which is why we're excited to be educating parents on the benefits of feeding EB eggs to their little ones," said Charlie Lanktree, CEO of Eggland's Best. "Now more than ever, we're proud to offer the only egg with superior nutrition, taste, freshness and variety that can help provide wholesome nutrition for the entire family."
Eggs provide essential vitamins and nutrients that help support healthy development. In addition to being a rich source of choline, which is crucial for fetal brain health during pregnancy, Eggland's Best eggs also have more than double the B12 compared to ordinary eggs, which supports muscle, bone and brain development for infants and toddlers.
"Eggs are a vital first food for baby that can help build a healthy foundation for life. However, it's important to recognize that not all eggs are created equal," said Dr. John La Puma, Clinical Director of ChefClinic and co-founder of ChefMD®. "I recommend Eggland's Best eggs because they provide superior nutrition compared to ordinary eggs found at the grocery store, such as 25 percent less saturated fat, six times more vitamin D, ten times more vitamin E and more than double the vitamin B12."
Eggland's Best eggs are also richer in a variety of micronutrients that can help support a healthy immune system. Most micronutrients are not produced in the body and must be derived from the diet. The superior nutrition of Eggland's Best is due to its proprietary all-vegetarian hen feed that contains healthy grains, canola oil and a wholesome supplement of rice bran, alfalfa, sea kelp and vitamin E. In addition, independent testing has revealed that Eggland's Best eggs have stronger shells than ordinary eggs, which leads to less breakage and helps them stay fresher longer. Eggland's Best's patented method of production and verification ensures that every Eggland's Best egg has superior nutritional qualities.
Eggland's Best eggs have been the recipient of more than 100 awards and honors for the product's superior taste, nutrition, freshness, and variety. For more information on Eggland's Best eggs and delicious recipes, visit www.egglandsbest.com.
