Eggs are the cheapest food item available but yet provide all the nutrients a person needs, said Vijayawada Poultry Farmers Welfare Association President Mulpuri Lakshmana Swami.

Speaking at a special programme organised to celebrate World Egg Day by the association, he feigned ignorance at such a special day existing for promoting consumption of eggs, but opined that egg must be made a staple in everybody’s diet. “Everyone should eat at least two eggs per day for a healthy body”, he added.

Eating one egg per day from childhood will enable your body to protect itself from all the harmful changes in the environment said Gannavaram MLA D.V. Balavardhana Rao, while formally inaugurating the programme. All the essential vitamins like A, D, K, I and especially the most important one, proteins are present in eggs, he said. Eating one egg a day is a healthier option than taking all the artificial dietary supplements available in the market, he observed.

Further awareness was created on how eating eggs would protect people from mental stress, reduction of cholesterol, prevention of Cancer, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and Heart problems at the celebrations through the various speeches and presentations. A special poster which states that egg is vegetarian was released on the occasion.

National Egg Co-ordination Committee (NECC) President and Advisor Bala Swami, Animal Husbandry Joint Director Damodar Naidu, NECC Zonal Chairman K. Prem Kumar, Broiler Association President G. Buccha Rao, Srinivas Hatcheries Joint Director K. Somi Reddy and Technical Director T. Krishna Reddy also participated in these celebrations.
