#EggsAreHealthy!


As you know, we've shared about Nellie's Organic Eggs (have you entered our giveaway yet?), and their sister brand, Pete and Gerry's Organic Eggs, and we've got some interesting news this week!

Last week, Pete and Gerry’s Organic Eggs filed a petition with the FDA to update its definition of ‘healthy’ to include eggs.

The current definition includes foods such as canned soup and sugary cereal, but excludes the nutrient dense egg. Seriously? Toaster pastries and pudding are HEALTHY and eggs aren't???? HUH?????

In a partnership with Registered Dietitian Keri Glassman, they hope to help share the health benefits of eggs, and urge the FDA to become more aligned with the current Dietary Guidelines for Americans, which recommend consuming eggs in all three model diets.


You can learn more about the campaign at eggsarehealthy.com, and be a supporter too!
