- Vitamin D is frequently referred to as the sunshine vitamin, as sunlight is necessary for the synthesis of this vitamin (which is produced underneath the skin following exposure to sunlight)
- Those at particular risk for vitamin D deficiency are the elderly (65 years+), those who rarely get outdoors (lack of sunshine) and people with dark skin. Children under five years of age are also at risk
Vitamin D contributes to normal:
- absorption and utilisation of calcium and phosphorus
- blood calcium levels
- maintenance of bones and teeth
- maintenance of normal muscle function
- function of the immune system
- vitamin D has a role in the process of cell division
- vitamin D is needed for normal growth and development of bone in children

The Department of Health recommends babies from birth to 1 year of age who are being breastfed should be given a daily supplement containing 8.5 to 10µg (micrograms) of vitamin D, whether or not the mother is taking a supplement containing vitamin D. Please note they also recommend that all children aged 6 months to 5 years are given vitamin supplements containing vitamins A, C and D every day unless they are having more than 500ml (about a pint) of infant formula (which is fortified with vitamins). The Department of Health recommends that adults and children over the age of 1 should have 10µg of vitamin D a day.
