Carrots speed up the children’s growth
Scientists found out that children who eat more orange vegetables, grow two times faster than their peers.
The study involved 300 children, aged 3 to 16 years. Children who ate more vegetables rich in vitamin A, have grown an average of 4 inches a year.
Their peers from the control group, for the same period of year have grown only 2 inches.
According to doctors, most of the children who did not consumed vegetables rich in vitamin A were healthy but suffered from latent (hidden) lack of certain vitamins.
Lack of vitamin A, iron and zinc results in slower growth in children, so do not let your child to skip carrots and other vegetables.
