Kids need Vitamins

IMG_1833

Vitamins and minerals are micronutrients that are vital for kids’ health and can be found in a variety of foods. There are two kinds of vitamins, water soluble vitamins, B and C, that are not stored in the body and fat soluble vitamins, A, D, E, and K that can be stored in body fat and the liver. Fresh organic vegetables, nuts, and fruit are filled with vitamins. The eight B vitamins need to be constantly replenished, as the body flushes out what it does not need at the moment. Whole grain bread, dried beans, green leafy vegetables, and nuts contain different B vitamins. B vitamins release energy from the carbohydrates, fats, and proteins in the foods kids have eaten. Vitamin C also should be eaten every day to fight off germs and infections and produce collagen for healthy skin and bones. Oranges, watermelon, strawberries, bell peppers, and tomatoes are rich in vitamin C. Vitamin A helps with vision and healthy skin and is found in carrots, spinach, and sweet potatoes. Kids drink milk for strong bones from calcium and the sunshine vitamin D. Sunflower seeds, spinach, and sesame seeds are filled with vitamin E that keep nerves tuned and muscles working well. Green leafy vegetables are the best sources of vitamin K that helps blood to clot. When kids eat lots of different organic fruits, nuts, and veggies, they can get all the vitamins and minerals to grow strong healthy bodies.
