The “go to” food for the children in my house is bread. Whether they are asking for french toast, a grilled cheese sandwich, some toast with peanut butter or any other form of sandwich, they like their bread. With this in mind, I try to choose varieties of bread that have added nutrition, like Stonemill Bakehouse.
Stonemill is first company in English Canada to introduce vitamin D into their breads. The skus that have the added vitamin D now have 25% of the daily value of vitamin D per serving (2 slices), which is considered by Health Canada as “an excellent source of vitamin D.” There is almost as much vitamin D as what’s found in one cup of milk and more vitamin D than what’s founding egg yolks, fortified orange juice or soy beverages.
With kids who are a little picky, like mine, it is important to look for food that they like that will provide those nutrients that they may be missing elsewhere. Soy beverages and eggs are a hard sell around here, and we don’t drink a lot of dairy, so Vitamin D is something that we could always use more of, particularly in the winter months when we aren’t getting it from the sunshine.
The Stonemill breads tat contains Vitamin D are:
- Chia – 6 Supergrains
- Sprouted 3 Grains – 3 Grains & Oatmeal
- 11 Whole Grains – Grains & Honey
- 12 Whole Grains – Sprouted Rye
- Omega 3 – Sprouted Flax and Sunflower & Walnut
- Fibre & Fruit – Cranberry Pumpkin Seed
- Flax & Chia – Supergrains
- Sourdough – Multigrain
- Sourdough – Classic French
- Sourdough – Hearty Bavarian Rye
- Sourdough – Belgian Whole Wheat
