In brief: Optimize vit D Level
25-hydroxyvitamin d in infants and children should be at least 50 nmol/l (20 ng/ml), based on the available evidence.
Dr. Dowd, M.D., who has worked extensively with vit d in his clinical practice recommends levels between 50 and 70 nmol/l for optimal health. http://getrealforkids.com/resources/real-health/must-have-supplements/2472-why-is-vitamin-d-essential-for-health#.
