We are delighted to share updated Parent Tips and Good Practice Points resources on the importance of vitamins for babies and children.
Parent Tip – Vitamins A, C and D
In the UK, it is known that some babies and children have low levels of vitamins A, C and D. Vitamins and minerals help us to stay healthy, including babies and children. They also help us when we are ill.
This parent tip will look at each of vitamins A, C and D, explaining why they are important for babies and children.
Good Practice Points – Advocating the use of Vitamin D
Health visitors have a central role to play in increasing Vitamin D uptake. These Good Practice Points, authored by Sara Patience, Registered Health Visitor, Registered Nutritionist, set out what health visitors need to know on advocating the use of Vitamin D.
They outline some evidence and guidance on the use and importance of Vitamin D, along with up-to-date evidence and references.
