Everybody is Talking about Vitamin D
We keep hearing how vital vitamin D is to our health. It is, in fact, low levels can cause all kinds of problems. These can include a low immune system, bone weakness and even Rickets. Skin problems like psoriasis and stomach issues including ulcers can also be a problem. It’s interesting that a study conducted in Lebanon concluded that children need more vitamin D than adults. 10 times more. It’s amazing to think that children in such a sunny country might not be getting enough, what chance have my own offspring got in the cloudy U.K?
Eggs and Salmon
Getting it into our kids is not easy. Despite knowing they are mostly ineffective I still give my 8-year-old a multi-vitamin to crunch along with his morning cereal. However, if you really mean business the best supplements are sprays you can buy from health food shops. A quick minty squirt and that’s 1000mmg of the vitamin. Eggs, salmon, mackerel and breakfast cereals are all great sources. Eggs are my favourite way to feed my children, omelettes, egg salad, boiled with toast, endless ways. One of my sons has an egg allergy so I ‘ve had to become more inventive especially as he has been diagnosed with low vitamin D. So I’m busy trying to find new ways to feed him. If you have any others suggests, please leave a comment below.
