Join dietitian, Sharon Natoli, for a deep dive into the crucial role of choline in cholesterol and fat metabolism, neurotransmitter production and cell membrane health. Up to 60% of pregnant women in Australia fall short on this essential nutrient (1), and in this episode, Sharon looks at why the humble egg can help bridge this nutritional gap. You’ll learn what choline is and why it’s so important for our pregnant and breastfeeding clients, as well as the latest guidelines on eggs, food safety and introducing allergens to infants. Plus, we deliver a carton-full of culinary egg-spiration, with delicious ideas for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks.
