When thinking about the nutrients we need we usually think about Vitamin C, B12 or calcium, but if you neglect your Iodine intake, have a second thought! The recommend daily amount is 150 micrograms, yet many adults do not achieve this. We need iodine for the production of thyroid hormones - when these levels become critically low it can cause a swelling in the neck called ‘goitre’. This deficiency is on the rise again, possibly as most people are cutting dairy from their diets. Iodine deficiency can also lead to sluggishness, depression and weight problems. Select a few of these options to help provide your daily amount - 

Cheese sandwich 

Crab paste

Sushi

Roast beef 

Creme caramel 

Boiled eggs 

Ice Cream

Mussels

Milk

Malteasers

Fish Fingers 

Fruit Yogurt
