Vitamin D

Children need healthy bodies to cope with being in school.

Humans have evolved to need natural light on their skin, in order to manufacture Vitamin D.

Vitamin D can’t be made by the body in any other way.

Vitamin D is extremely important for healthy bones, teeth, blood cells and digestion, as it helps the body move Calcium from our food, to our blood, to our body tissues and bones. If there is a prolonged shortage of this vitamin, a disease known as Rickets can develop.

Having healthy bodies mean that our children are ready for learning at school.
