Or you can simply go to Walmart and purchase a vitamin D supplement for $3.58 and take one or two a day.

My mom is also low in vitamin D.  She just has to take a vitamin, drink more milk, and go out in the sun at least 15 minutes a day without sunblock.

Dark leafy greens.

But I also take a Vit D suppliment, because its one of the best ways to support your immune system and fight off seasona depression. I take about 4-5000 IUs a day. 

Why does my Pre-Schooler ride Rear-Facing? Because she is not a minimum. She deserves more than that. If we get into an accident, I want to know that I have done everything in my power to protect her.  Rear-Facing is endorsed by every car seat authority in the US. It is PROVEN to be safer. Why would I choose to take an unneccessary risk with the most precious gift that I have been given? PM me for more info!

My vitamin D was low as well. I take vitamin D supplements. I'm not a milk drinker, not outside enough to get it from the sun. It helps absorb calcium and vitamin D deficiency may lead to cancer.
