LIVELINES: VITAMIN SUPPLEMENTS

The Nation's leading pediatricians group says children from newborns to teens should get double the usually recommended amount of vitamin D because of evidence that it may help prevent serious diseases. Well one nutritionist is doing his part to make sure that happens, especially for those in need. Ed Jones from Nutrition World was our guest. He says the American Academy of Pediatrics suggests 400 units daily to fight disease. Vitamin D is sold in drops for young children, capsules and tablets. One of the best sources is sun, but of course spending lots of time outside without sunscreen also is a health concern.
