Avonmore Winter Wellness Recipes with Lili Forberg
This Winter Avonmore want to highlight the importance of Vitamin D and calcium absorption for all ages at all stages of life with their Winter Wellness Campaign.
If you didn’t already know, Avonmore Super Milk is enriched with added Vitamins B,D,E and extra calcium and folic acid, Vitamin D and is an important part of the diet which helps the body to absorb calcium- win, win!
In adulthood, we naturally begin to lose more calcium from our bones than we can replace and that means we begin to loose bone strength. Avonmore have teamed up with foodie Lili Forberg for the month of November to create a series of delicious recipes for keeping well in winter and show you how easy it is to include your daily recommended intake of Vitamin D!
