When we remember that an egg is store-up food material to be used for developing the young chick, we can naturally expect it to be a good food containing the various nutrients. Eggs are more nearly interchangeable with milk than any other food. Eggs are tissue building foods, being rich in protein and mineral matter. (Phosphorus, calcium, and iron.) On account of their richness in iron, they are one of the first foods added to the growing child’s diet.
