Recent research released and published online in the “Annals of Epidemiology” shows a strong correlation between Prenatal Vitamin D intake and caries rate in children. The risk of cavities was lower in the mothers with higher Vitamin D intake during pregnancy.
Pregnant women should make sure they are getting enough Vitamin D during pregnancy, as it has many benefits to both mother and baby. Among those benefits may now also be a lower risk of cavities in your children!
Just a little Wednesday wisdom!
