How Do Vitamins Make Us Stronger?

What Are Vitamins?

Vitamins are tiny helpers that make sure our body works right. We need them to grow, stay strong, and fight off germs!

Vitamin A: For Sharp Eyes

Vitamin A helps you see better in the dark and keeps your eyes healthy. It's like night-vision goggles in carrots and sweet potatoes!

B Vitamins: Energy Boosters

B Vitamins turn the food we eat into energy. They're like tiny power stations found in nuts, meats, and grains!

Vitamin C keeps your skin, bones, and teeth strong, and it helps your body heal faster if you get a scratch. Oranges and strawberries are packed with it!

Vitamin C: The Protector

Vitamin D is made when the sun kisses your skin. It helps build strong bones by working with calcium in foods like milk and fish.

Vitamin D: The Sunshine Vitamin

Vitamin E: The Shield

Vitamin E protects your cells from getting damaged. It's like a shield found in nuts and spinach!

Vitamin K: The Healer

Vitamin K helps stop cuts from bleeding by making your blood sticky. You can find it in green veggies like broccoli and kale.

How Vitamins Work Together

All vitamins work together like a superhero team, each with a special job to keep you healthy!

Not Too Little, Not Too Much!

Just the right amount of vitamins keeps us healthy. Too little or too much can make us feel sick, so we need to balance them.

You get most vitamins from eating different kinds of foods—fruits, veggies, meats, and grains. So, eating a variety makes you stronger!
