Should you give your Child Vitamin D

Vitamin D has been in the news quite a bit lately due to its benefits for the immune system. And most of us are pretty comfortable taking the supplement for ourselves. The recommendations from health Canada have just changed to allow for non-prescription status at higher doses of up to 2500 IU per day.
