Vitamin D Lacking

A recent study of toddlers in Canada indicates that our young children do not get enough vitamin D. This is the so called “sunshine vitamin”, as regular exposure to outdoor sunlight helps the body supply all that we need.

Grandpa Richard’s point of view is that kids are indoors more than they used to be. They are playing more video games and watching more TV. I also think that some parents prefer it that way, as they feel safer knowing exactly where their kids are. Most would also say that we have some climate challenges here in Canada, however, since most of the study was done in the Toronto area, where weather is not very extreme, I consider that point a cop out.
