Grandma's easy to follow Vitamin list will help you rest easy knowing you are giving the correct dosage of vitamins, minerals and nutrients to your family.

It's an illusion that American's are well nourished. Some people may be overfed but not with substantial nutrients. Most people are not getting all the nutritional support they need to maintain good health from their diets alone.

Dietary surveys indicate that 30 to 50% of the total caloric intake of the typical American is made up of highly processed, adulterated and nutrient-deficient foods. For example, white flour has been deprived of 60% of its original calcium, 71% of phosphorus, 75% of iron, 67% of copper, and 85% of manganese. The loss of vitamins is similar.

The first step to eating smart is making sure your diet includes sufficient amounts of fiber and other essential nutrients, and restricting the amounts of fat and refined sugar and flour that are consumed. Most people should eat as varied a diet as possible and become better acquainted with all kinds of fresh vegetables, fruits, fish, poultry, eggs, 100% whole grains, nuts and seeds.
