Our research

According to research by Arla Big Milk 43 per cent of Brits mistakenly believe they can get a vitamin D top up from the sun, regardless of what month it is. Data has revealed that 37 per cent admitted to thinking they can get a top up by simply stepping into daylight and alarmingly, 30 per cent said they rely on sunshine only to get that all-important immune boosting nutrient!

UV levels

It came as a surprise to many that during the months of October through to March, the UK’s UV levels are not high enough for our bodies to make vitamin D*, despite two in five of us (43 per cent) forcing ourselves outside during winter to try and get a sunshine boost.

Arla Big Milk is letting families know, that come rain or shine, you can stay topped up and has launched an interactive poster in Manchester, where often gloomy skies leave locals lacking in vital vitamin D** to show Mancunians when they need an immunity-boosting vitamin D hit most. Using real time data, the forecast provides a morning and afternoon vitamin D update , so passers-by know just how much, or little, vitamin D the sunshine is giving.

But Manchester is not alone with its lack of sunshine, so why not check your city below for a live UV level reading and see when you need a top up most.
