Why It’s A Smart Choice
Fish is one of the few food sources with naturally occurring vitamin D, a vitamin that is most famously known for its bone health. However, recent research has shown that vitamin D plays a key role in many other parts of the body. For example, Vitamin D is very important for a strong and healthy immune system.
With this meal, you get nearly 800 IU of vitamin D per serving. That’s more than the minimum daily recommended amount of 600 IU!
