Bones & joints

Bones and joints provide support for your body—without them you wouldn't be able to move, stand or sit.


It's crucial to look after your bones and joints by nourishing them through your diet.

Many vegetables contain vitamin C and vitamin K, both of which help your body to maintain healthy bones.

Vitamin C is also necessary for the formation and health of the cartilage in your joints.

Getting nutrients such as calcium and vitamin D is especially important for healthy bones. Minerals such as copper, manganese, magnesium, phosphorus and zinc also play a part in forming and maintaining healthy bones and joints.


Veggy tip

Thinking about peeling your vegetables? Stop! While vegetables such as carrots, parsnips and potatoes are typically peeled before cooking, try leaving the skin on. Not only will you barely notice a difference, the extra fibre is great for you—just be sure to give the vegetables a good wash.
