Kids Need Their Nutrients – Vitamins Work!
Stanford Children’s Health States:
Most parents know that children need vitamins and minerals to stay healthy.
But knowing exactly what nutrients and how much they need of each is not
always easy. Learning a bit more about vitamins and minerals can help
ensure your kids are on the right nutritional track.
Despite parents’ best efforts, kids may not always get all the vitamins and
minerals they need. To make sure your kids are getting the full range of
nutrients that they need, be sure to offer your children a variety of
foods. Start by taking a closer look at the foods your kids eat on a
Understand the vitamin alphabet
The nutrition labels on food packaging can show you which foods contain the
proper nutrients. Below is a breakdown of the essential vitamins and
minerals that kids and teens need for different areas of growth and where
to find them:
Vitamin A is important for healthy skin and normal growth and it also
helps vision and tissue repair. Vitamin A can be found in rich
quantities in yellow and orange vegetables, dairy products, and liver.
Vitamin B helps the body produce red blood cells and assists in
metabolic activities. Vitamin B is found in meat, poultry, fish, soy,
milk, eggs, whole grains, and enriched breads and cereals.
Vitamin C is the body’s tool for healing and fighting off infection,
and it also strengthens tissue, muscles, and skin. For healthy doses of
vitamin C, look to citrus fruits, strawberries, tomatoes, potatoes,
brussels sprouts, spinach, and broccoli.
Vitamin D helps the body form and maintain strong teeth and bones and
assists with the absorption of minerals such as calcium. Vitamin D is
found in fortified dairy products and in fish oils. Adequate exposure
to sunlight is also a way to get enough vitamin D. Sunlight stimulates
the vitamin, which naturally occurs in the skin, to become active in
the body. (Remember not to stay in the sun too long without SPF
Iron is important for kids, especially during periods of accelerated
growth. Iron contributes to the production of blood and the building of
muscles. Beef, turkey, fish, beans, and fortified breads and cereals
are excellent sources of iron.
Calcium is vital for the development and maintenance of healthy bones
and teeth. Consuming inadequate amounts during childhood can affect
growth and development, but it can also lead to weak, fragile, and
porous bones (potentially leading to osteoporosis later in life).
Calcium is found in low-fat milk, sardines, yogurt, and cheese. It is
also present in lesser amounts in vegetables such as broccoli.
