Does Your Girl get a Daily Dose of Sun-Sourced Vitamin D?

Health professionals are reporting higher rates of vitamin D deficiency in children. Why is this concerning? This vitamin is associated with a myriad of processes in a healthy body—from cognition and mental health to a functioning immune system. What is contributing to this decline?  

Many say that a lack of exposure to good, healthy sunshine could be a major culprit! How often does your girl get outside to romp in the sun? This single adjustment in your girl’s routine could be foundational to her long-term health. 

Looking for some fun outside ideas? Consider carving outside time into your calendar—parks, zoos, botanical gardens, hiking, or for homeschoolers, even doing tomorrow’s math or Bible lesson outside! Your girl will soak up every moment when these are done with friends and in community.
