Good sources of vitamin D
Unlike most other nutrients, it can be difficult to get enough of this vitamin from food alone. Even when eating a varied and balanced diet, the majority of our vitamin D actually comes from exposing our skin to sunlight. In the UK, we can only make vitamin D this way during the spring and summer months.
There are however some good dietary sources of vitamin D – oily fish (try salmon, mackerel or herring), liver*, eggs, some mushrooms, fortified foods like breakfast cereals and even a little bottle of Yakult Light. Vitamin D is also available in cod liver oil and vitamin supplements.
