There is a wide range of different minerals that are needed in a healthy diet but we have focussed on two important ones: Vitamin C and Vitamin D.
- Vitamin C can be killed by high heat so be careful not to cook vegetables for too long.
- Needed to absorb iron, for healthy skin, and to fight infection.
- A common source of Vitamin D is sunlight!
- Needed to absorb calcium and growth and repair of teeth.
- Margarine, oily fish and sunlight.
