Why is vitamin D important for children? A few of the many reasons…

1) NHANES 2001-2004 found over 70% of US children and adolescents were vitamin D deficient or insufficient (serum levels < 29 ng/mL).  This was six years ago – incidence has been steadily increasing.

2) Childhood obesity affects 17% (12.5 million) of America’s children, placing them at risk of significant adverse health outcomes.  Obese children with atherosclerosis-promoting risk factors are showing signs of advanced “vascular age.”  Low vitamin D levels are associated with obesity.

3) Inadequate vitamin D nutrition during perinatal development may threaten a child’s long-term health outcome well into adult years, as a risk-modifying factor for many chronic diseases including osteomalacia, rickets, multiple sclerosis, schizophrenia, heart disease, type 1 diabetes, and cancer.
