minerals for kids ,minerals and rocks minerals and vitamins … a mineral is an element that originates in the Earth and always retains its chemical identity. Minerals occur as inorganic crystalline salts. Once minerals enter the body, they remain there until excreted. They cannot be changed into anything else. Minerals cannot be destroyed by heat, air, acid, or mixing. Compared to other nutrients such as protein, carbohydrates and fat, vitamins and minerals are present in food in tiny quantities. This is why vitamins and minerals are called micronutrients, because we consume them only in small amounts.
