Remember the good old days when kids loved playing outdoors in the sunshine? It has now become a rarity, hasn’t it? Blame it on modern gadgets such as smartphones and high-end gaming consoles, which make kids hooked on to those finger-numbing video games. Combine this with the fact that children are getting more and more picky and fussy with their food, and you have a recipe for disaster.
Importance of Calcium and Vitamin D:
Calcium is the primary mineral in bones. Calcium fortifies your child’s bones, thus supporting the body. Giving your child the right amount of calcium helps build a stronger skeleton. Your child will additionally need Vitamin D, which helps his or her body to absorb calcium. Vitamin D transports calcium from the gut to the blood and eventually to the bones. Thus, both are needed for strong bones. Calcium also promotes healthy teeth.
Sources of Calcium and Vitamin D:
Calcium-rich foods include dairy products, such as milk, cheese, yoghurt, and dark green leafy vegetables, such as spinach and kale. On the other hand, Vitamin D is found in several foods such as egg yolks and fish. However, the best way to give your child his or her daily dose of Vitamin D is exposing his or her body to bright sunshine. This is because the body synthesises Vitamin D through sunlight.
Need for Calcium plus Vitamin D Gummies:
Lack of adequate sunshine, especially during the winter months, can trigger a deficiency of Vitamin D in your child. Other lifestyle factors, such as watching television for long periods of time, are also responsible for keeping children indoors. In addition, many children have shown aversion to dairy products and green leafy vegetables, which are calcium rich. These deficiencies have paved the way for Calcium plus Vitamin D gummies.
