To help your bones, fill your plate with low-fat dairy, whole grains, fruits, vegetables and lean protein.

Q and A

Q: Does vitamin D help with immunity?

A: While it's not the only vitamin necessary for immune support, research shows that vitamin D can help the immune system resist bacteria and viruses. This fat-soluble vitamin assists with bone health and muscle function, too. While your body can make vitamin D from the sun, we often block that by putting on sunscreen, or we live in an area that doesn't offer a lot of sunshine. Egg yolks are a great source of vitamin D, whether hard-boiled or scrambled.
