Vitamin d3 is essential vitamin required by everyone. In case of kids the requirement is even more. In some cases the risk of deficiency is high. For example, if an infant or toddler remains indoor and not exposed to sufficient sunlight then there are chances that he or she may develop its deficiency which can affect the child in long term.
The risk is even more in breast-fed babies as mother’s milk does not provide this vitamin. Calshine P and such vitamin supplementation from other brands are prescribed to prevent and cure vitamin D3 deficiency.
