Can I eat eggs if I want to be healthy?

Eggs are an economical and nutrient rich food with good quality protein along with other vitamins and minerals. Two eggs have around the same amount of kilojoules as a tub of yoghurt or a small tin of salmon.

The Australian Dietary Guidelines suggests enjoying up to 7 eggs per week as a part of a healthy, balanced diet. You can think of eggs in the same way as other protein rich foods, and they are great as a quick nutritious meal or snack.

Research shows eating eggs won’t affect blood cholesterol levels so everybody should include them in their healthy eating plan.

An Accredited Practising Dietitian (APD) can provide tailored dietary advice for people, including great ideas on how to incorporate eggs in your healthy eating plan.
