Checks before eating
to see if they are fresh and thoroughly cooked

Small, speckled and scrumptious – Quail Eggs are a food lover’s heaven. They are one third in size as compared to chicken eggs, but pack a whole lot of nutrients in them. As long as quail eggs are consumed fresh and thoroughly cooked on both sides until both the egg white and egg yolk are solid, it is safe to consume during pregnancy.

Quail eggs are a powerhouse of nutrients. They are a good source of proteins that are essential for healthy bone and muscle development and to boost the immune system. They provide Vitamins A and B12 that keep the skin, eyes, nervous system, immune system, metabolism and blood healthy. They provide approximately a quarter of an expecting mother’s daily choline requirement. Choline plays a critical role in enhancing an infant’s memory and ability to process information. The egg yolk contains minerals such as iodine, phosphorus, selenium, riboflavin and omega-3 fatty acids instrumental in the development of the foetus’ brain development, nervous system and vision.

Make sure to avoid foods made using raw or undercooked eggs as they pose the risk of salmonella and consult your doctor to know about foods safe during pregnancy.
