I’ve had to resort to hiding veggies in tomato sauce and quinoa in muffins to make sure my girls get the nutrients they need! Just recently they’ve started boycotting milk as well. But my kids aren’t the only ones with this problem… 9 out of 10 girls, and 3 out of 4 boys, don’t get enough calcium, and a recent study has shown that there’s been a decline in Vitamin D levels among all Americans, both children and adults, over the past 10 years!
We all know that getting enough calcium into our diets is important for developing and maintaining strong bones and teeth, while Vitamin D is vital in helping the body absorb calcium, although very few foods are natural sources. So when Mom Central introduced me to the new Shedd’s Spread Country Crock Calcium Plus Vitamin D, I was thrilled to find a way to help my kids get more of the vitamins they need everyday.
Just two servings of Country Crock Calcium Plus Vitamin D provides 20% of the daily value of Calcium, and 40% of the daily value of Vitamin D! Think two pieces of toast with breakfast. And it of course has the same great original Country Crock Taste. I wouldn’t know the difference if it wasn’t printed on the label!
