According to the NHS, the majority of the population gets enough vitamin D through exposure to sunlight and a healthy, balanced diet. However, during winters i.e. between October to early March people fail to make enough vitamin D from sunlight alone and need to get it from their diet, making them prone to vitamin D deficiency.
That said, some of the healthy food sources of vitamin D include:
– Oily fish – such as salmon, sardines, herring and mackerel
– Red meat
– Egg yolks
– Fortified foods – such as some fat spreads and breakfast cereals
