Vitamin D

The sun allows your body to make vitamin D. Sunlight contains UV radiation. This radiation ensures that vitamin D (with a very difficult word calciferol) is produced in the skin. Vitamin D is important for healthy bones, but it also protects you from getting sick.
By the influence of the sun, our body produces vitamin D. This improves our mood, we get strong bones and vitamin D offers protection against a whole bunch of nasty diseases. Half an hour in the sun and your body produces five to six times the recommended daily amount of vitamin D! That’s why we get sick faster and don’t feel as good when the sun isn’t shining.
Sunlight is also an excellent immune booster.
In short, we need the sun. Run outside immediately when a sunbeam shines between the clouds! But please keep your social distance. And don’t run in groups.

Fish and butter

In addition to the sun, vitamin D is also found in fatty fish, such as salmon and mackerel, and low-fat margarine. So if you spread your bread with margarine every day, eat fatty fish every now and then, and go outside for at least fifteen minutes every day, you have enough vitamin D in your body.

Summer fruits

Also nice: summer fruits! They are deliciously sweet and packed with valuable vitamins (A, provitamin A, B1, C, E) and trace elements (potassium, manganese, copper, phosphorus, magnesium). Very important for our health.

Fruit is healthy because it contains a lot of vitamins. Vitamins ensure that your body functions properly. Fruit (and vegetables) contains a lot of vitamin C and folic acid.


Vitamin C is important for good resistance. Folic acid prevents anemia and is important for growth. Fruit and vegetables also contain a lot of dietary fiber. That is important to be able to use the toilet properly.

Each type of fruit contains more substances from one and less from the other. That is why it is good to vary with fruit. Sometimes you take an apple and then a banana or a kiwi. That is not only very tasty, but then you always get something from everything!
