Do eggs have iron?

Eggs have many nutrients, but not that much iron!

Hmmmmmmm.. For some reason we get this question a lot here at Positive Eats. And the answer is, while eggs are a nutrient powerhouse, there are other foods that are much better sources of iron.

Eggs contain <0.1 mg of iron each. We need on average about 8-10 mg of iron per day to maintain high energy levels and brain function.

So if you’re looking for a lot of iron..know that eggs contain a little bit..but there are other foods that are richer, such as meats, green veggies, beans, and cocoa 😀

If you're looking for iron, a dark chocolate egg may be a better option!
