When you Give a Two Year Old an Egg

I went to the market the other day with my friend Anne and her two year old daughter. As I watched a man hand the two year old an egg, which she immediately put in her mouth, my not-yet-maternal mind raced to things like: bird flu, e-coli, salmonella, etc. How can you keep a two year old from grabbing everything and “tasting” it? You can’t. I guess you just hope it’s building their little immune systems and pray. Good news: to our surprise the egg turned out to be a hard-boiled “less dangerous” snack which makes much more sense to hand to a two year old than a raw egg.
