(1) When babies aren’t introduced to these foods early on, it is likely that their body may treat them as foreign substances and trigger an allergy.

You Will Need:

  • Eggs
  • A microwave
  • Salt

Try cracking the egg on a fine sieve if you are trying this for the first time. Add a few drops of vinegar to help the whites hold better.
