Unit 8 – Vitamins and Minerals Part 1

8.8 Vitamin and Mineral Infographics

Infographics are used  to visually display information or data. They have exploded in popularity in the last decade. We find them on Facebook, on websites, in advertisements, and in textbooks.

 MTSU Nutrition and Food Science students in Advanced Nutrition II during spring 2022 created the graphics listed below. The students used the free version of Canva templates to create them.

The ones listed below include the RDA for teens and adults, the top four foods sources with amounts, main functions, deficiency conditions, and some fun facts about about six vitamin and six minerals . Consider using them to help review the main concepts about these nutrients.
