Memoraid Kids vegan Vitamin D3 drops provide the UK Department of Health recommended level of 10mcg vitamin D3*. Vitamin D contributes to the normal function of the immune system & maintenance of normal bones & teeth.
Vitamin D is only found in a few foods, that is why the Department of Health recommend that all children age 6 months to 5 years are given a daily supplement containing 10mcg of vitamin D. The Department of Health also recommend that babies who are breastfed are given a vitamin D supplement from birth even if the mother is taking a vitamin D supplement herself. Source NHS.co.uk.
One of the best ways to source vitamin D is from sunlight. This provides challenges for parents as at the same time you have to protect your child’s skin from the sun using suntan lotion. These lotions reduce the amount of vitamin D made in the skin. This combined with the fact that children are spending more time indoors is another good reason to supplement your child’s diet with vitamin D.
Our plant-based vitamin D3 provides the recommended daily level and also has a great smooth taste. It can be added to the child’s mouth or mixed with their favourite food.
