Introducing Kellogg's Vitamin D Fortified Cereal: Combating the Dreary Winter Blahs.
"Did you know that over 85% of Canadian children are not meeting the estimated requirements for dietary vitamin D?"
As someone who suffers from seasonal depression brought on by the darker winter days, I was thrilled to receive a Winter Sunshine Kit from Kellogg's. It held three boxes of the new vitamin D fortified cereal and an alarm clock with a light. I'll chat more about the light in a future post, but the cereal was a welcome addition to my pantry. Increasing my vitamin D intake is part of the advice given by my doctor to combat seasonal depression brought on by winter's dreary days. And since we all have a hard time taking supplements in pill form in this family, eating vitamin D enriched cereal we already love is easy peasy.
"To help Canadians get enough of the sunshine vitamin, Kellogg Canada has fortified 13 of it's most loved cereals with 20% of Health Canada's recommended daily intake of vitamin D."
When a half cup of milk is added to these Kellogg's vitamin D cereals, a single bowl can give up to 45% of the recommended daily vitamin D intake. I know my family hasn't cared either way that the cereal was enriched since the box contents have disappeared entirely without a peep. Eating this cereal, along with other vitamin D rich foods is a great way to boost our vitamin D intake without having to swallow a pill.
