Match the Nutrient With the Food Source

I'd much rather obtain my daily vitamins and minerals from the food I eat rather than popping supplements, but it's tough to know which foods offer the best sources of each nutrient. So take this little quiz if you're curious about how to fulfill your recommended daily intake of some essential vitamins and minerals.

1 of 5

Which of these whole grains contains the most iron?

2 of 5

Eating which of these foods will almost fill your RDI of vitamin B12?

3 of 5

The RDI of vitamin A is 2,310 International Units (IU). Eating which food will fulfill your daily requirement?

4 of 5

Vitamin E isn't discussed as much as vitamins C and B, but you need 15 milligrams of it per day. Which is the best source?

5 of 5

If calcium is your goal, which non-dairy source contains the most?

3/5. Question 1 & 5 are those ones I failed. I was almost positive no. 5's answer would be the soy milk... oh well. I like sesame seeds however I have soy milk daily; the RDI's were close and I attain the make-up dosage in my other meals. Love almonds and red peppers though I do not eat beef/pork so my B12 is attained through a supplement.

^^ You can make a sesame-honey candy. Depending on the size/texture, you could get 1/4 cup of sesame easily. They even have sesame health bars. I think Fit did an article on it not too long ago I can't imagine eating a 1/4 cup plain though. Eww.

Exactly my thought, amybdk. Drinking a glass of soymilk is pretty normal, but it would take me at least a week to get through that many sesame seeds. Still, I thought this was a good quiz.
