Vitamins play a vital role in our health and wellbeing. They help us to make skin and teeth and bones and to repair and replenish. We need a regular intake of vitamins to stay healthy and we do this through the food we eat and sometimes with vitamin supplements.
Parents often add vitamin supplements to the diet of their children, but this needs to be done with the supervision of a health professional so that the correct dosage is given. An excess of certain vitamins can be as damaging as a deficiency.
