    Anyone giving their kids vitamin D?

    Primal Fuel
    Does anyone have a suggestion on kid-friendly vitamin D supplement? My 7yo won't swallow a pill. I've seen the gummy ones. Anyone tried these? or anything else?

    Eric,



    Give him the liquid Vitamin D3 & mix it into his food. Here is one brand I found:
    http://www.costco.com/Browse/Product...ang=en-US&Sp=C

    1,000 Units per 25 lbs of body weight is the recommended dosage per senior members here who have researched this subject extensively.
    See the thread, Vitamin D for more details:

    Best of health to all,
    Grizz

    ^^^^^ to grizz. i give my son the liquid, and although he tells me it tastes like poop, he'll down it anyway. i'll take it. i've tried gummy D3 and the fish oil ones, they're horrible.

    I just get my kid outside as much as possible.
    Today is a new day. You will get out of it just what you put into it. If you have made mistakes, there is always another chance for you. And supposing you have tried and failed again and again, you may have a fresh start any moment you choose, for this thing we call 'Failure' is not the falling down, but the staying down.

    Definitely! I use the drops (vitacost has one with 2000 IU per drop...and I'm sure many othe places have it). My daughter has to be on 4000 IU for awhile even though she's only 30 pounds.

    Good question! I think I will have to get some of that for my kiddos, the sun is already worthless here. And soon it will barely exist.

    Oh and I also give her fermented cod liver oil every other day, which has some vit D.

    Mine is probably too young to help you out - he still gets his vit d in liquid form right before I pop a boob into his mouth to wash the nasty medicine taste away. (Seriously, your choice is HFCS-laden vit d or the 'healthy' option which tastes like ass. WTH is up with that?!)

    Oh, and I frequently strip him down to his socks and let him frolic in the yard. He gets to air out the boy bits and I don't have to worry about changing the diaper for the afternoon. The only downside is the screaming fit when it's time to diaper up and go inside again. My kid LOVES BEING NUDE. Yeesh.
