Tigerlilly Quinn: Dippy Eggs are in!

Dippy Eggs are in!

Like all good bloggers I LOVE a poached egg and avocado combo. I love eggs in pretty much all forms tbh, a good scramble on toast with a sprinkle of salt, a boiled egg at a picnic and of course the childhood favourite, a dippy egg. Something that is so hard to master but creates such a feeling of achievement when you crack open that top and see you've done it to perfect dipping quality. Buttered toast and a cup of tea to go with it, heaven!


I'm working with British Lion Eggs in this post to share the news from the Food Standards Agency that runny eggs are now safe for mum-to-be and babies. There's a lot of lovely things about being pregnant and a lot of things that are hard about it too (hello four month long morning sickness!) but I always found being careful around the things I ate being one the tricky ones to deal with. In fact in Mabli's pregnancy I craved eggs so much, I was eating boiled egg sandwiches daily at one point!

So it's great news I'm sure for any of you pregnant mamas to know you can go wild with your runny poached eggs and smashed avocado!

It's also great to hear that runny eggs are now also safe for babies too (as long as they are carrying the Lion mark of course) they can be introduced into their diet as soon as they start experimenting with food. I know that my two love a dippy egg as much as me and it's a great lunch time meal too that you know they will definitely eat. I don't think the charm of turning your buttered toast into soldiers every really leaves you.


It's important to note that eggs need to have the Lion stamp on them to show they have been approved by the Food Standards Agency. It's interesting to note that the advice to not eat dippy eggs had been in place all the way back from 1988, now some thirty or so years later pregnancy women and the elderly are now safe to eat them! Studies have found that the risk of salmonella has been reduced massively over the past two decades which is brilliant news.

Are you an egg fan? Whats your favourite way to eat them? You can find more info to the FSA advice here.

The British Egg Industry Council’s Lion Code of Practice was introduced in 1998 and has been acknowledged by Government as being responsible for the subsequent dramatic fall in human cases of salmonella
