    My step-mum is convinced that I could get rickets or my children could be born with them. Is there any other health risks that may occur? If so how could they be prevented?

    A health risk of being very healthy! XD Nah, everything has a risk to it, but as long as we’re all careful, it’s all good!

    They can be avoided by still maintaining a healthy, consistent, and wide variety of a diet.

    Nope, I didn’t see that – I’ll have to check it out. Haven’t used it much as of late. Thanks for letting me know! I’d love to try those bars. :)

    That’s a pretty big incentive to stay healthy right there lol.

    I just set it to custom values, and did some research on how much of what we should really have for optimum health. I can honestly say since tracking it, and going vegan – I get waaaay more nutrients than I ever did as an omnivore. Being aware of what you’re eating changes so much.

    Woops, they only have options for “vegetarian”, not vegan. Still awesome, though!

    Here are the other options:

    Calorie Count Recommended Values
    Generic USDA Daily Values
    My Custom Values
    Low Carb Diet
    Low Fat Diet
    Vegetarian Diet
    Diabetic Diet
    Athletic Diet
    Mediterranean Diet
    Pregnancy Diet
    Lactation Diet

    (I’d have edited my first post, but the forum is no longer allowing me to edit my first post on a topic – only my second. A glitch?)
