Lack of vitamin D can also be a contributing factor to depression and low mood. So go enjoy that sunshine, and bring a friend if you can! Vitamin D is also important for babies.

 Mum is the primary influence of the family’s health, children should see mum loving her body. Families who exercise together stay healthier together.  “It also helps parents to get to know their child and their abilities so they can help them build on any weaknesses – which may include physical skills or confidence.”
