We recently posted a poll asking you how many IUs of Vitamin D a child under 12 should be taking daily.
Several of your guessed the correct answer (as can be seen below), which is 400 IU per day. Children between the ages of 2 and 12 can safely take 400 IU per day.
Vitamin D not only plays a role in healthy bone development, but may prevent neurological disease, cancer and influenza.
