Of Eggs and Babies

Eggs and BabiesLast week, I enjoyed a cuddle session with baby cows (I know, they are called calves), in a gorgeous barn on a perfect autumn day. That adorableness dose was courtesy of our friends at SaskMilk.
This week, the cuddle perks of my work got even better as I joined two Mum and Baby groups in Warman and Saskatoon, to talk eggs and babies with Mommy Connections. This great organizations provides new moms with informative sessions and a wealth of other resources, and we thought it a great opportunity to discuss the important role that eggs play in babies’ nutrition.
