British Egg Week is running from 30th September – 6th October, 2013.
Its organised in association with British Lion Eggs, the week’s aim is to show parents and children that eggs are an excellent meal, since they are high in nutrition for youngsters and value for money, too.
Top chefs have cooked up lots of recipes to try – just visit the website for the recipe details.
The British Lion mark on egg shells and egg boxes means that the eggs have been produced to the highest standards of food safety.
There are only around 8 calories in an egg, and they’re rich in B vitamins too, which means they’re great if you’re on a diet or just want to eat healthier. But it’s estimated that around 15% of people have only a drink for their breakfast.
You should buy eggs from a reputable retailer where they will have been transported and stored at the correct temperature (below 20°C)
Keep eggs refrigerated after purchase
Store eggs in their box and, as eggs are porous, away from strong-smelling foods
Make sure you use eggs by the ‘best before’ date shown on the egg or box – for Lion Quality eggs, this guarantees that they are fresher than required by law
