Kids who don’t get enough vitamin D may be at a higher risk for weight gain, especially the particularly dangerous belly fat, a new University of Michigan study suggests.
Vitamin D is most commonly taken in by the sun, which means winter brings the risk of low levels.
Vitamin D has been in the news recently, as some health professionals have called the federal standards for vitamin D intake, which are ?? per day, far too low.
Vitamin D deficiency was also linked to slower growth in height among girls but not boys, the study found.
