4 REASONS WHY VITAMIN D IS CRUCIAL FOR INFANTS

Vitamin D supports growth and development of the spine and other body systems. A deficiency in Vitamin D may lead to rickets. (Muscle Spasms, Scoliosis, Arched Feet)

  1. It aids in maintaining potassium and calcium levels in the blood which builds strong bones and teeth
  2. Required for Blood clotting and mineral balance
  3. Contributes to a strong heart and nervous system
  4. Maintains insulin levels

Although infants receive Vitamin D through breast milk, sun exposure, and as they are a few months’ older foods, this amount is not sufficient in the amount of Vitamin D an infant's needs. Therefore, you should give your baby Vitamin D drops until they are one years old. When your baby turns one, they are able to eat more solids with a variety of vitamins which will be a sufficient amount of Vitamin D to ensure your baby's healthy growth.
