World Egg Day 2021: Celebrating the Many Benefits of Eggs for All

Established at the 1996 IEC conference, Friday 8th October marks the 25th anniversary of World Egg Day!

What is World Egg Day?

On Friday 8th October, egg fans worldwide will celebrate the power of the egg and all its nutritional and environmental benefits.

The global event, celebrated on the second Friday of October every year, welcomes everyone to honour the unique contribution eggs make to supporting people around the world.

Why Are Eggs So Important?

Owing to their broad range of nutrients, eggs are a healthy, nutritious and affordable part of the diet for people at all stages of life, particularly those in nutritionally vulnerable areas.

The health benefits of eggs are vast. They contain 13 essential nutrients, including choline, which supports foetal brain development; vitamin B12 and iron for child growth and overall brain function; and iodine, which aids the healthy functioning of the nervous system and maintains healthy skin.

This unique range of qualities means that eggs are an ideal choice for all different kinds of lifestyle as well as age, from athletes to academics.

Along with their nutritional value, eggs are the most environmentally sustainable and affordable animal-source protein available, helping support families around the world as well as the planet itself.
