Kids are constantly being told to "drink their milk." But the question is how much to meet their recommended daily allowance of Vitamin D.
A new Canadian study finds two cups of cow's milk per day should be enough to maintain adequate vitamin D levels for most children.
Andrea Rumschlag, a pediatric dietitian at Cleveland Clinic says, "The younger kids are toddlers, around the ages of 1 and 3 they only need about two servings of dairy products, in general, per day. So, that's either 8 ounces of milk or 6 to 8 ounces of yogurt."
Researchers say vitamin D supplementation may have to be considered for some kids based on the season, skin pigmentation, and amount of time playing outdoors.
Rumschlag says a well-balanced diet will ensure your child is getting the right amount of vitamin D.
