Remarks on Hard Boiled Egg Yolks:

Egg yolks are rich in fat-soluble vitamins like vitamin A, D, E and K, which are essential for your baby to grow a strong bone structure.

They are also a good source of natural fats and proteins for your baby. As such, egg yolks are similar to breastmilk, which is a great balance of fats, proteins and natural carbohydrates. Hence, it is suitable for your baby's nutrition requirements. 

Although egg yolks contain cholesterol, cholesterol is important for brain development. This is also why breast milk contains lots of cholesterol.
