Is your child taking a Vitamin D Supplement?

Sue, my mother-in-law has done a ton of research on Vitamin D. Just to give you a little background, Sue is an RN and a certified massage therapist. She also is constantly self-educating and I trust her recommendations 150%. Our entire family is now taking Vitamin D supplements. Please watch this quick video on how important it is to have your child (especially 0-5 years old) on a supplement.

Danielle, how many IUs of Vit D do you give your kids every day? she mentioned 2000 in the video, but that seemed higher than I've heard recommended for kids?

I have been giving my 3 kids Vitamin D since last year. I opted out of the H1N1 Flu shot so I started supplements. I use the Carters Vit D drops..1000 IU every other day. LOVE this because it is Vit D3 only. I opted with this so the kids didn't get an increase in other vitamins as well. I already give other suppliments. I have to say that my kids seem healthier when compared to previous years. When they get a cold...I increase Vit D for a few days and so far so good :)
