For people with the medical need to be fed by g-tube, there is another recipe that works well and is VERY easy.
Scramble 4 – 6 eggs, blend well and feed. You may need to add oil or milk to gain the right consistency. Other ingredients can be added if desired.
- Each egg contains roughly 70 – 100 calories, so this is a nice and simple way to get a high calorie meal.
- Regarding cholesterol in eggs: there is still not a determination that shows a link between the cholesterol we eat and the blood cholesterol in our bodies. (Our body manufactures that cholesterol.)
- Eggs are NOT high in saturated or trans fats. One egg has about 5g of fat of which only 1.5g is saturated.
- Eggs are very nutrient rich including iron, folate, phosphorous, riboflavin, vitamins A, D, E and B-12, and zinc.
NOTE: Egg allergy is fairly common. DO NOT FEED EGGS TO KIDS UNDER 2 YEARS OF AGE. This may help avoid developing an egg allergy. There is some evidence that indicates many kids “outgrow” egg allergy by age 4 or 5. Check with your doctor.
