Missing sunlight then try natural vitamin d

As with all vitamins, many people want to make sure that they are getting adequate amounts of vitamin d in their diets.  Anything that is called a vitamin is called so because the body needs it on a regular basis, but cannot produce it on its own.  What is funny about vitamin d is that the body can produce it when the skin is exposed to sunlight, yet it is still considered a vitamin. 
Most animal products such as eggs, veal, beef, fish liver oils, salmon, and vegetable oils are rich in vitamin d.  Vegetarians must be particularly careful about making sure they get enough D as plants, fruits and nuts are poor sources of this vitamin.  Vitamin D has also been shown to have beneficial results in fighting against multiple sclerosis.
Babies who do not get enough vitamin d in their diets may develop the bone development disease of rickets.  Pregnant women may want to consult their doctor to see if supplementing their diet with D is beneficial.  Sunlight is also essential for babies, but most parents will want to make sure that babies have sunscreen on, if there is prolonged exposure to the sun.  Be sure to try and keep your baby out of the sun between peak burn hours of 10 am and 2 pm.
