A 2008 review of children’s eating habits concluded that many children don’t consume the recommended quantities of fruit and vegetables, and therefore may be missing out on the micronutrients and fibre they need for normal, healthy development.
In particular, fussy eaters tend to eat lower quantities of foods containing vitamin E, vitamin C, folate and fibre, (probably due to their lower consumption of fruits and vegetables), and so may be at risk of essential nutrient deficiency.
The B-group vitamins play a vital role in the metabolic processes of all living cells by serving as coenzymes in the conversion of carbohydrates, proteins and fats from the diet into energy.
Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that is important for the healthy functioning of the immune system. It is also required for the growth and repair of collagen-based structures, such as children’s skin, cartilage, ligaments and tendons.
Vitamin D is needed throughout life to support the absorption and utilisation of calcium, and is important for building and maintaining strong healthy bones.
Zinc is involved in many aspects of immunity and resistance to infection. Along with vitamin D it is an essential nutrient for children’s bone health. Zinc may also play an important role in children’s cognitive function, as well as helping to support concentration and mental performance.
Iodine supports cognitive development and IQ, and is required for the normal functioning of the thyroid gland.
