Vitamin D helps to control the amount of calcium and phosphate in our bodies. Both are needed for healthy bones, teeth and muscles.

Vitamin D  can be found naturally in a small number of foods, including oily fish, red meat, liver and egg yolks. It's also found in fortified foods like breakfast cereals and fat spreads.

However, it's difficult for us to get the recommended amount of vitamin D from food alone.

Our main source of vitamin D is from the action of sunlight on our skin. 

See more about vitamin D and sunlight.

During autumn and winter (from October until the end of March) the sun isn't strong enough in the UK to produce vitamin D. That means we have to rely on getting it just from the food we eat. 
New advice on vitamin D from Public Health England (PHE), which says that adults and children over the age of one should have 10 micrograms (mcg) of vitamin D every day

The government says it has issued new vitamin D recommendations "to ensure that the majority of the UK population has satisfactory vitamin D blood levels throughout the year, in order to protect musculoskeletal health"

Vitamin D supplements are widely available from supermarkets and chemists. Read The Packaging, an make sure it states that each tablet/capsule id 10 Micrograms (mcg) or slightly over.
