44. And sunscreen/sunblock

so many people refuse to walk out the door unless their child is slathered head-to-toe in sunblock. I'm lucky that our schools aren't super concerned about it and my youngest child's babysitter believes in short bursts of sunblock-free outdoor play to get vit D. I let my kids play outside sunblock free often. When we're going to the lake or going to be out all day, then they get slathered in it, but they are generally outside enough it's not a problem. LOL, at the local elementary school, the principal believes in kids being outdoors so much that unless it's colder than -25 degrees (Celcius) or a thunderstorm, the kids go outside, rain or shine. My daughter complains but I think it's good for them. I notice a difference on how well they sleep when they play outside. My other daughter does have to be careful (should've been a red head and is covered in freckles) but I think short bursts throughout the day are fine.

Here in Canada they were theorizing the rise in MS in Canada (some of the highest rates in the world) were linked with lack of vit D as well.
