SUPPLEMENTS

The UK government recommends that children have 10µg of vitamin D a day. Children can get vitamin D  from sun exposure, intake of foods naturally rich in vitamin D, fortified foods or vitamin tablets/drops. Only very few foods are naturally good sources of vitamin D and during the winter months the sun is too weak to help building vitamin D.
