Footballer and sports nutritionist Jess Wain received a World Cup call-up when she was asked to become an ambassador for the Love Free Range Eggs campaign.
The 25-year-old, who lives in Hornton, runs her own business Inspire Nutrition. As the countdown to the World Cup continues, the Love Free Range Eggs campaign – run by the British Free Range Egg Producers Association – is taking the opportunity to remind shoppers that eggs are an important part of a sporty diet.
Campaigners spotted Miss Wain’s website and she was asked to become an ambassador for the movement because of her expertise in sports nutrition and keen interest in football.
Miss Wain, who plays for Leamington Spa Ladies FC, said: “I’m a big fan of eggs, especially free range, and I try to promote them as often as I can.
“I’m really pleased to be an ambassador for the campaign.
“Lean sources of protein are a key part of footballers’ diets and eggs are always on my list of recommendations.
“I suggest many different cooking methods to my clients including poaching, boiling, scrambling and making omelettes.
“Eggs are great to have as part of your diet as they’re so versatile and I tell the sportsmen and women that I coach that between one and three eggs a day is good for them.”
