Shrimp, just like most seafood, is a good source of iodine. In a typical three ounce serving you’ll get about a quarter of the iodine that you need in a day. Shrimp also contains other essential nutrients and minerals, including calcium and protein. This means shrimp is good for bone health and helps you maintain strong and healthy muscles.

8. Dried prunes

Full of fiber and great for keeping your digestive system in check, dried prunes contain about 10% of your daily iodine requirements in a serving of five. They also contain boron, vitamin Na and K, as well as many other important nutrients that make them an important part of a healthy and varied diet.

9. Boiled eggs

The last thing you’d expect to be in a boiled egg is iodine, but they do in fact contain about one tenth of the iodine you need in one day. This is just one large hardboiled egg, and it contains vitamins A and D, too. It’s also rich in calcium and antioxidants, making them great for maintaining good health and keeping your cells in good working order.

Combine a boiled egg with healthy vegetables and you have a great lunchtime meal that packs a nutritional punch.

10. Regular yogurt

Plain yogurt, that has not been infused with sugars, is a great healthy snack and can form part of a healthy breakfast. Regular, plain yogurt will give you over half of your daily iodine requirements in just one cup, making it great for people with an iodine deficiency. It is also low in calories, with that same cup of yogurt containing just 150 calories. This makes yogurt an ideal snack or a great part of a healthy breakfast which can be combined with fruit and oatmeal.
