World Egg Day at the University of Manitoba this Friday, October 13



This year’s World Egg Day celebration is focused on students! For students concerned with eating healthy and the cost of groceries, eggs are a great choice for a nutritious study snack, a special brunch on the weekend and an easy supper on busy weeknights.

We’ll be celebrating #WorldEggDay at the University of Manitoba’s University Centre from 10 until 2:30 on Friday, October 13. Look out for our yellow tent and a QX104 radio remote set up in front of the fireside lounge at University Centre.

Egg farmers will be onsite handing out delicious, FREE mini quiches with recipe cards to students passing by. Ask your burning questions about eggs, learn all about egg farming in Manitoba, answer trivia questions to win a whisk and get delicious new egg-focused recipes – eggs are a nutritious, versatile and affordable protein that can be enjoyed anytime!

See you there!


Eggs for a Healthy Future

Did you know that the egg is one of the most environmentally sustainable and cost-effective animal-source proteins available? The protein in eggs helps to build muscle, curb hunger, boost the immune system and much more. Among the most common nutrient deficiencies worldwide are iron and vitamin D, A and B12 – all of which can be found in eggs.

And here in Manitoba, all the eggs at the grocery store are produced locally, leading to fewer emissions from transportation.

Together, let’s celebrate the nutritious, versatile egg and the farmers who produce them! Happy World Egg Day!
