World Egg Day celebrated Today
World Egg Day is being celebrated today across the globe.
This day was established at the IEC Vienna 1996 conference when it was decided to celebrate World Egg Day on the second Friday in October each year to raise awareness about nutritional benefit of eggs.
The egg is a wholesome nutritious food with high nutrient density and it provides 12 percent of the daily value of protein besides other nutrients including vitamins, amino acid and minerals.
Several functions will be organized to create awareness about the importance of egg in human nutrition around the world.
