Best Ways for Busy Moms to get Vitamin D

Hello all!

I finally made the time for a check-up with my doctor, and one thing I discovered is that I have a Vitamin D deficiency.  What?? It seems sort of surprising to be lacking the “sunshine vitamin” in the middle of summer, but I’m quite fair-skinned and I do lather on the sunscreen — perhaps too much!Best Ways for Busy Moms to get Vitamin D

So, what am I doing about this and why is it so important?

Easy Ways to get Vitamin D

My doctor told me that Vitamin D helps the body to absorb calcium from milk and can help prevent osteoporosis, breast cancer, and other diseases. Therefore, it’s super important to get sources of Vitamin D in order to stay a healthy mom! I’ve also heard that a certain amount of exposure to the sun BEFORE putting on sunscreen is healthy for you and actually helps your body produce the needed vitamin. In the winter, it’s also crucial to eat the right kinds of healthy food in order to get your daily Vitamin D fix!

  • I am based in the UK and as a fair skin mummy and also given the UK rubbish summer weather it shouldn’t have been a surprise when I was told I had very low Vit D, but it was. Anyway on the NHS if this is the case in the UK your doctor will prescribe Vit D supplement but equally I don’t have time to go see the GP right now for the script so I brought Sanatogen multi Vit. This gives me every thing a woman needs including Vit B6 and a high dose of Vit D. Broccoli is supposed to be amazing for Vit D as is any green vegetable.
    Us mums really should try do cereals more, it’s just when the heck do you get time to have breakfast especially when you have a toddler wanting to stick hands in your bowl and have some of what mummy is eating. However it’s time to get sensible and I think I will just sneak of and grab some breakfast upstairs or I might buy cereal bars which are quick and easy to eat.
