Q: How Can I get More Vitamin D?

A: Try to eat more foods that are rich in the vitamin including mackerel, tuna, salmon and eggs. Other foods are fortified (the vitamin is added) to help you get more. Fortified foods include some breakfast cereals and milk. Because we don’t get enough vitamin D in Ireland, everyone should take a supplement. Children and adults aged between 5 and 50 years should take 5µg of Vitamin D3 every day. Everyone aged 51 years and over should take 10µg of Vitamin D3 every day.
