Best food for every vitamin

There is a flood of information on internet which food is good to eat and which you should avoid but at the same time also experts are not uniform what should we eat. Should this be balanced diet with animal and plant origin or diet with limited of animal product? Plus here we have also whole foods and processed foods so this is really million dollar question?

But today I would just like to familiarize you with vitamins and foods that contain them.
