Delicious D is a new line of flavoured Vitamin D3 products by Platinum Naturals. Vitamin D helps us grow bones and teeth (something kids do, in spades!), of course, since it helps form calcitriol, the hormone which enables us to absorb and use calcium. But it also has a role in preventing a variety of infections and diseases, and may also be able to help with autoimmune disorders such as asthma. These drops will ensure your kids won't be deficient in Vitamin D, regardless of their diet or the weather.
Although we can produce vitamin D ourselves beneath our skin with sufficient exposure to sunlight, it's not always possible to get the requisite amounts (at least 10 to 15 minutes of UV 3 or more intensity at least twice a week to the face, arms, hands, or back), due to factors like season or latitude (there isn't enough UV intensity in Canada from Nov. to Feb.), cloud cover, smog, or the use of sunscreens. And while some foods are fortified with Vitamin D to compensate for that, some are intolerant of or allergic to those foods or avoid them for other reasons (such as vegans).
