how many day in week my 5yrs old child could eat egg.


General dietary recommendations from the American Heart Association are that adults eat no more than 3-4 eggs yolks each week. There aren't any formal recommendations for children, but like adults, it is recommended that children limit their intake of cholesterol to 300 mg each day. Since an egg contains about 213 mg of cholesterol, eating eggs too often can cause your child to have a diet that is high in cholesterol.

It is also important to keep in mind that the general recommendations for eating 3-4 eggs per week include eggs that are eaten as an ingredient of other foods, such as cakes. For example, if you use 4 eggs to bake a cake and your child eats 2 of the 8 pieces of the cake, then that is equal to eating one whole egg.

And the relationship between dietary cholesterol and how or whether or not it influences your blood cholesterol level is controversial. Many critics of the American Heart Association's recommendations think that it is much more important to limit the amount of saturated fats in a person's diet, instead of limiting cholesterol.
