We All Need More Vitamin D

According to a recent study, millions of children in the United States may not be getting enough vitamin D, the sunshine vitamin.  A another study showed that 70% of all adults are deficient in this vitamin.    

Children who get too little vitamin D could be in for certain health problems with their bones and teeth.  Most doctors say that kids should get at least 400 units of vitamin D a day.  That is equal to four cups of milk.  According to Dr. Jonathan Mansback, a study leader, "Getting a little too much is better than coming up short."   Adults need vitamin D to maintain joint and muscle comfort, support  breast health, colon and prostate health, and helps with a healthy mood.  So, make sure you and your children are getting enough vitamin D

1. fortified milk
2. some cereals
3. oily fish
4. sunlight
