Q: Why do babies need vitamin D?
A: Vitamin D is essential for proper development of cells, bones and immunity, and helps the absorption of calcium. Lack of vitamin D in children is a risk for developing rickets, and may contribute to conditions such as autoimmune diseases, diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, and cancer in later years.
Q: Why vitamin D supplements for babies?
A: Maternal vitamin D deficiency is common in northern hemispheres and is a major risk factor for vitamin D deficiency in infancy. Infants younger than one year of age are especially vulnerable if they are breastfed as breast milk only contains a small quantity of vitamin D. Health Canada & the Canadian Paediatric Society recommend a daily supplementation of vitamin D starting from birth for breastfed infants.
Q: How do I know what type of vitamin D is best to use?
A: Foods may be fortified with vitamin D2 or D3. The recommended form of vitamin D is vitamin D3 or cholecalciferol. This is the natural form of vitamin D that your body makes from sunlight.
Q: What is vitamin D deficiency?
A: Vitamin D deficiency is characterized by impaired bone mineralization. It is classified as a serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25[OH]D) level of <20 ng/mL (50 nmol/L). The consequences of vitamin D deficiency include: bone disease (rickets, osteoporosis, low bone mass).
