How to ensure your family is getting enough Vitamin D

sponsored by Avonmore Super Milk

Once upon a time ago, I lived in sunny New York. I soaked up the sun most of the year and had a natural tan. I had no idea how lucky I was to have the sunshine.

Cue my move to the West of Ireland and what a change of weather that was. Ironically, when I came to visit Ireland before moving here, with my now-husband, the sun was shining and the weather was gorgeous for the full two-week visit!

In fairness, everyone kept telling me, “it’s not usually like this.” But I had no idea the true lack of sun that we get here in Ireland until I made the big move over.

Being honest, vitamin D wasn’t a vitamin that I ever thought about before moving to Ireland. Vitamin D is produced in the body when our skin is exposed to sunlight. So for many countries in the world, people naturally absorb vitamin D every day via the sunshine.
