How Vitamins Keep Children and Adults Healthy

Healthy ingredients on table. Morning time.

Eating a good variety of fruit and vegetables helps to keep both parents and children healthy. This ensures you get a consistent mix of vitamins and minerals, which have different and important roles to play in developing a healthy body:

  • Vitamin A helps with immunity, may help to prevent cancers and is important for eyesight. You can find Vitamin A in carrots, eggs and spinach.
  • Vitamin B is the term for a range of nutrients that work to convert food into energy. One of the B vitamins, folate, protects unborn babies from birth defects, whilst B6 and B12 are thought to have heart health benefits. You can find Vitamin B in avocados, beans, corn, onions and yoghurt.
  • Vitamin C helps to counter free radicals and prevent colds. You can find Vitamin C in broccoli, brussel sprouts, mangoes and oranges.
  • Vitamin D can help to guard against osteoporosis by assisting with the absorption of calcium. It also helps to regulate cell growth. This vitamin is not found in sufficient quantities in many foods, so people get the majority of their vitamin D requirements from sunlight. You can find Vitamin D in eggs, tuna, salmon and, of course, light from the sun.
  • Vitamin E activates Vitamin K and also works to protect the body from conditions such as stroke and heart attacks. You can find Vitamin E in avocados, kiwis, mangoes and leafy greens.
  • Vitamin K is used by the body to stop it bleeding so that it can clot properly. It is also a good bone strengthener. You can find Vitamin K in brussel sprouts, cabbage, kale, lettuce and spinach.
