Top tips on getting enough vitamin D:
- Ensure you and your children spend some time outside each day during the summer months before applying sunscreen. Sunscreen should be used to prevent sunburn.
- Some foods in the UK and Ireland are fortified with vitamin D, including some yogurts, some breakfast cereals and some breads. Try to incorporate these into your diet and eat oily fish once or twice a week.
- Take a daily supplement of 10 micrograms (400IU) and look out for the preferred form of vitamin D3
Vitamin D is important for bone strength and development so is particularly important for babies and children. Topping up your child’s vitamin D levels protects them from the more serious effects of deficiency, such as the childhood bone disorder rickets.
