Eggs are a good source of natural protein and are packed with vitamins and minerals.  Paired with salmon which is high in omega 3 fatty acids for essential growth and development, you have a supercharge combo. Introducing eggs early in the weaning process at around six months can also help protect babies against developing an egg allergy.
