Vitamin D




Winter is here and for those that live in locations with cold and gloomy climates, it is rare to see the sun for months on end. This can easily lead to Vitamin D deficiency. Vitamin D goes hand in hand with calcium absorption, which is important for bone density. It also plays an important role in keeping our immune system strong (stay away COVID!!) & prioritizing mental health (for example: low vitamin D can increase depression).

When receiving Vitamin D from the sun is not an option, turn to these foods for adequate intake. -Oily fish—salmon, tuna, swordfish -Egg yolks -Cheese -Mushrooms -Fortified orange juice -Fortified milk and plant-based milks -Fortified cereals: Cheerios, Special K, Rice Krispies, Corn Flakes Quaker instant oatmeal, etc.


Stay healthy throughout the winter months and incorporate some of these foods into your everyday routine! And for the lucky ones in warm climates… enjoy the sunshine!!
