Vitamin D to be added to all Kellogg’s children breakfast cereal

By 2. November 2011Blog, Nutrition

With the increase in cases of rickets over the last 5 years, Kellogg’s has decided to fortify all of its children’s breakfast cereal with Vitamin D by March 2012.

Rickets is softening of the bone in children, predominately caused by a lack of Vitamin D, leading to bone fractures or deformities. Vitamin D can be made by the body when exposed to sunlight as well as being present in the food we eat, i.e. flesh of fatty fish or fish liver oils.
