Kids May Need 10 Times More Vitamin D

I've been reading a lot lately about the health benefits of Vitamin D for kids. I wanted to make sure my little man was getting enough of "The Sunshine Vitamin", because a deficiency in children has been linked to diabetes, obesity and more.

(In adults, a lack of Vitamin D has been linked to osteoporosis, breast cancer, colon cancer, prostate cancer, heart disease and depression.)

In fact, kids may need ten times more Vitamin D than what has been originally recommended.

Once the summer time gets here and Brady is going to the pool on a regular basis, he will be getting plenty of Vitamin D.

P.S. Here is one way to see if you are vitamin D deficient.
