Vitamin D Supplement For Kids
Vitamin D, known as the sunshine vitamin, helps support a healthy immune system. It can be difficult to maintain vitamin D levels, particularly during the winter months when exposure to sunshine is limited. The HSE (Health Service Executive of Ireland) and NHS recommend that children routinely supplement with vitamin D due to low sun exposure and dietary intake of Vitamin D, particularly in winter months. Children need to have vitamin D all year round to maintain normal bones and teeth.
