Nutrition and Healthy Eating
Have you ever heard someone say that if you want strong bones and teeth, you need to drink your milk? This is because milk (and other dairy foods like yogurt and cheese) are good sources of Vitamin D which is needed to build and keep strong bones and muscles. But did you know that you can also get Vitamin D is through exposure to the sun?! Vitamin D also protects us from illnesses like the flu, gives us a mental boost, improves sleep, and even helps us build muscle and maintain a healthy weight.
Try one of these foods to get your daily dose of Vitamin D:

• dairy, like low-fat milk

• almonds

• spinach

• whole-grain cereal

• mushrooms

• eggs

• orange juice

• fish (like salmon)
Bonus! Take a walk outside and soak up some sun – and Vitamin D! Check out this guide that can give you some cool spots! Family Hiking Guide
