With so many options out in the market today, Vitamin D is still one of the most essential vitamins for your child’s growth and physical strength .
Regardless of age, Vitamin D proves itself to be one of the most important nutrients that the body needs, and is highly beneficial especially for children during their growth and development phase. Some of the benefits of taking vitamin D include:
- Regulating calcium and phosphate absorption that aids in cell, bone, muscle and teeth growth and strength
- Lowering blood pressure and manages blood sugar levels
- Enhances the immune system
This well-known immune, digestive, circulatory and nervous system booster is fat-soluble and aids in bone growth to make children grow stronger and taller. Vitamin D can be easily incorporated to your child’s diet through natural food sources such as:
- fatty fish and fish oil
- fortified food such as cereals
In fact, it is also called the “sunshine vitamin”, and the only nutrient that the body naturally produces in response to sunlight. This means that everyone who is able to go outside between 10:00AM to 3:00PM with a recommended exposure of 5-30 minutes will be able to get their recommended dosage of vitamin D, according to experts.
But it’s not easy for other children to get the right amount of vitamin D in their body, so getting that ‘daily dose of sunshine’ is easier said than done. Factors include:
- Pandemic which limits families to continue their active, outdoor lifestyles
- Preference to indoor lifestyles and activities
- Pollution, especially in cities
- Extreme weather changes
Even in countries like The Philippines where the country’s geographical climate provides us with availability to natural sunlight, many still do not get their recommended amount of vitamin D.
To make sure your children are still getting the right vitamins and minerals to help them enhance their height and strength potential, parents can include the addition of regulated amounts of kid-friendly vitamin D rich foods to their overall diet:
- Tuna, shrimp and sardines
- Fortified milk, orange juice
- Vitamin D supplements
Choosing a good multivitamin or supplement is one of the fair options that you can do for them. A well-nourished routine and multivitamins that have vitamin D helps children continue to absorb the needed nutrients to help them have stronger bones and fight back illnesses at a better rate than those who do not.
