When people try our eggs, they do love them and comment on the yolk color, how the whites are nice and thick (that means grade AA or AAA for the whites or something close to that).
BUT.... the people who say they TASTE wonderful and who WANT them..... and who EAT them like crazy.....
I can tell you that every single parent who has commented to me about the eggs and who has fed their child these eggs and has a child that can talk has told me that their children love these eggs. They tell me stories that the kids liked the green tinted eggs the best and that they can't get them to stop eating the eggs. I get this same story over and over and over.
So I started to wonder why? Why is this? Isn't that odd I say to Mike? He looks at me as if I have 3 eyes, but then I continue..... there has to be a connection. For those that know me well, I have this rule-- when you hear the same thing three times- there could be a pattern and you should investigate. Some people tell me I'm intuitive-- I believe I just listen well and connect dots.
So I narrow the data. I've heard this from parents with children as young as 3 and as old as 21. So it must be people that are growing. What does a growing body need?
What is in these eggs that is not in other eggs?
Hmmm... the good Omega 3's. I wonder if the green eggs have more Omega 3's than the brown eggs?
Why would children's bodies be craving Omega 3's?
Well, the research is out there on Omega 3's. I had no idea how important it was to a growing body and a growing brain.
I've not distilled it to find the best article that isn't selling Omega 3 supplements but Omega 3's are evidently very important for growing children. Here is one that talks about the benefits of pastured eggs.
So just like pregnant women have cravings and all of us have cravings when our body is lacking a certain vitamin or mineral, our kids bodies are saying "I like what is in those eggs" Give me more!!! Their bodies are lacking something-- something that is in the eggs.
My oldest child has eating issues- she forgets to eat, she only eats certain things, she can be cranky when she doesn't eat correctly, etc. But now that I am writing this, I realize that when I have hard boiled eggs and she eats 1 a day, she is a more balanced child. I am going to have her help me with an experiment and see if there is a cause and effect. The interesting thing is that as picky as she is - she loves salmon. The kind that is wild with Omega 3's. We eat a lot of salmon as a result. Hmmmm... the dots are being connected even more.
If anyone has researched Omega 3's and the importance to developing children, please comment with a posting. I think there is a reason why kids love the fresh eggs and if it helps them grow and develop then I'm even more hooked on pastured eggs.
