Is 2000 iu of Vitamin D per day too much to give a 5.5 and 2.5 year old? They both get a multivitamin with a little vitamin D in it and the 2.5 year old does drink about 2 cups of milk per day.. We live in the northwest and I would like to also offer some immune protection, but I don't want to over do it and cause harm. I would appreciate any and all replies as I am really wanting to start supplementing in a safe way ASAP.. I would also love to be directed to any research you guys know of regarding this..
I think it's fine. Reading on the vitamin D council website is a good place to start. If the kids are deficient, they may need more, I am giving my kids more but we've got specific health things we are working on and I'm comfortable with my understanding of our overall health situation. Testing at some point may be helpful too, I plan to test the kids sometime in the coming months, but I started supplementing first.
