What are vitamins?

🥕 All of us, of course, have heard a lot about vitamins.

🥚 Vitamins are various organic substances united by similar features: they are needed in relatively small quantities and are indispensable for the normal development of the body. In simple words, everyone needs vitamins, because without them the functioning of our body is impossible.

🍋 Most vitamins are not synthesized in the body and therefore must be obtained with food. The lack of certain vitamins is called avitaminosis and provokes various diseases — scurvy with a lack of vitamin C, rickets with a lack of vitamin D, etc.

🧑 It is especially important to maintain the level of vitamins for actively growing children. In order for their body to function at the highest level, it must receive a sufficient amount of essential nutrients, that is, the diet must be balanced and varied.

👩‍⚕️ To find out how to provide the child with the necessary amount of vitamins, you should consult a pediatrician. Mother's House doctors care about preventing diseases, not treating their consequences, so your pediatrician will always tell you how to balance your child's diet and prevent the negative consequences of vitamin deficiency.
