science nerds, help!

A 3-year old child is admitted to the hospital for a severe case of measles, but on psychical examination it is found he has bowed legs and enlargement of the ends of his long bones. Diet and social history indicate his mother relies on apple juice for the child's beverage only. Due to the mother's work schedule and fear of violence in the neighborhood, the child on plays indoors.
What vitamin is the child deficient in? What is this deficiency called? What changes should this mother be informed to make?
