Re: Natural vitamins for children

Funny thing. Sending the slum kids from London for two weeks into the countryside each year, during the 1920s and 1930s, massively reduced the cases of rickets.

.
I thought it was giving kids cod liver oil in the 1950s but I digress.

What is important to note is that cases are on the increase (in the U.K.) Fortnite and Minecraft probably have something to do with it, as do over-cautious parents who are over-zealous with the sun-screen and other sun protection.

Additionally, children (in the U.K.) no longer get free milk at school (milk being another source of vitamin D).
