Vitamin D is essential for everyone, but especially for young children because it promotes the proper development of bone structure.
The sun feels good, but you have to be careful and enjoy the benefits while protecting yourself. Over the years, our skin generates a natural protection to the sun's rays. The skin becomes thicker as its pigment system matures.
