Vitamin D is a crucial part of your diet. As a key component of bone building, it can also prevent bone diseases like rickets in children, and osteoporosis in adults, especially in women.
By getting 10-15 minutes of sunlight per day, your skin can produce more than enough vitamin D for the day. Unfortunately, it can be hard to get that amount of sun exposure during the winter, in certain parts of the country, and with a busy day-to-day schedule. Furthermore, people with naturally darker skin can require up to six times that amount of sun exposure to achieve adequate levels of vitamin D.
Luckily, you can get your daily dose of vitamin D in your diet, and here are a few foods you can eat to boost your intake.
