Getting all the essential nutrients in a day can be a challenge for anyone, and when you’re a parent of a picky eater, the challenge becomes even greater. I try my best to make sure that my boys are getting the vitamins and minerals they need for good health but when I can do that in an easy and kid-friendly way, I’m extra happy.
Now, Stonemill Bakehouse has made proper nutrition a little easier for adults and children alike by offering eleven different breads that contain 25% of the recommended daily intake of Vitamin D per serving! These breads are naturally enriched with Vitamin D thanks to the yeast, which is exposed to a light source during production that naturally transforms the sterols in the yeast to Vitamin D. And you can enjoy the benefits of added Vitamin D in any of these delicious breads:
- Chia – 6 Supergrains
- Sprouted 3 Grains – 3 Grains & Oatmeal
- 11 Whole Grains – Grains & Honey
- 12 Whole Grains – Sprouted Rye
- Omega 3 – Sprouted Flax and Sunflower & Walnut
- Fibre & Fruit – Cranberry Pumpkin Seed,
- Flax & Chia – Supergrains
- Sourdough – Multigrain
- Sourdough – Classic French
- Sourdough – Hearty Bavarian Rye
- Sourdough – Belgian Whole Wheat
While the body naturally produces Vitamin D in sunny conditions, many people suffer from low levels of Vitamin D in Canada, especially in the colder months. And there aren’t very many foods that contain Vitamin D, so getting the nutrient from a product that is as frequently consumed as bread just makes sense.
This bread would also be an especially good choice for those children that can’t drink milk or simply don’t like it, as milk is one of the more common sources of Vitamin D. One serving of Stonemill bread contains almost as much Vitamin D as a glass of milk and more Vitamin D than egg yolks, fortified orange juice or soy beverages!
Stonemill Bakehouse is committed to the three P’s in all its business practices: people, planet and prosperity. The company’s dedication to providing healthy, all-natural products, supporting organic farming and reducing its environmental footprint have helped to make its breads a favourite with so many families. And this newest line of bread enriched with Vitamin D is a perfect example of the company’s forward-thinking philosophies!
Stonemill bread is primarily available in Ontario. They have limited distribution in Quebec and Atlantic Canada.

Stonemill is the first company in English Canada to introduce Vitamin D to its bread and I love the fact that the company has done so in a natural way. And with so many delicious breads to choose from, you’re sure to find one that your family will love. Give these breads a try and see how Stonemill Bakehouse is making healthy eating a little easier for your family!
