The child’s brain continues to mature after birth. This process requires large amounts of omega-3s.
In the family of omega-3, DHA is essential to the maturation of the nervous system, in particular to manufacture the myelin sheath of the neurons. Present in breastmilk or in fortified infant formulas, its presence must be guaranteed by diversifying your baby’s diet.
DHA is not found in all foods. Absent vegetable oils, even those rich in other omega-3 fatty acids, DHA is found in large quantities in fatty fish for example. But also in Columbus eggs, especially in the yolk.
By introducing a yolk of a Columbus egg cooked (crushed and mixed with vegetables) into a baby’s diet, you will bring 75% of the DHA it needs per day. A regular supply of Columbus egg yolks (two or three times a week), supplemented by small fatty fish such as sardines or anchovies (once or twice a week) provides an ideal supply of omega-3. The quality of omega-3 Columbus eggs is preserved during cooking.
