Good Vitamins for Kids
Posted On 4/22/2013 4:59:07 PM By-jagat
Kids tend to be picky eaters and may not receive the amount of vitamins, minerals and supplements that their bodies require. It is important that kids understand the importance of vitamins and how beneficial they are for your body, as they play a role in keeping you healthy and preventing illnesses.

Vitamin C

It is recommended that kids have a continuous supply of vitamin C in their diet as it is not stored in the body. Kids should consume high sources of vitamin C such as citrus fruits to ensure they get enough. It is needed to form a protein called collagen, which helps to hold cells together, along with making skin, scar tissue and muscles. Vitamin C is also essential for healthy teeth, bones and gums, according to KidsHealth.org. Vitamin C helps to the body to absorb iron, which aids in healthy hair and also calcium. KidsHealth.org recommends getting at least 75 mg of vitamin C a day for boys and 65 mg for girls.

It promotes good vision by helping to make pigments in the eye, according to MedlinePlus. It is also essential for a healthy immune system and is an important vitamin for normal development and growth, according to KidsHealth.org. Sebum, a natural oil, is created by vitamin A and is used to make your skin feel hydrated and fresh. Boys should get around 900 micrograms of vitamin A a day, while girls should get around 700 micrograms.
