‘The Young Ones’ Support Kids Cancer

The egg-farming Matuszny family has hatched a great idea to help ill children – they’re donating 50 cents from the sale of every dozen of their baby-sized eggs in NSW and the ACT to the Centre for Childhood Cancer and Blood Disorders at Sydney Children's Hospital Randwick.

Called ‘The Young Ones’, they are small 540-gram, free-range “pullet” eggs – these are the first eggs that a young hen lays for six weeks before moving onto laying the larger 700-gram, traditional-sized eggs. They taste the same as regular eggs and are ideal for children and people wanting a smaller serve.

andquot;Every young child receiving cancer treatment at Sydney Children’s Hospital Randwick needs our help. Donating money from the sale of ‘The Young Ones’ is a way that we can help make a difference in the lives of these children,” said Peter Matuszny, founder of Manning Valley Free Range Eggs.

The chickens at Manning Valley roam in stress-free pastures, free from fertilisers, pesticides, hormones and antibiotics.

The proceeds will help to improve the quality of the care of the children and families whose lives are affected by cancer.

‘The Young Ones’ are available exclusively at Coles and BiLo Supermarkets for the next two months across NSW and ACT.
