Vitamin D: UK sunlight is not enough for toddlers – the role for GPs in preventing deficiency

(0 votes)

Abstract

Sunshine exposure and diet alone do not provide adequate vitamin D for vulnerable groups in the UK. To prevent deficiency and the health consequences, GPs should be advising appropriate supplements for all infants, toddlers and pregnant and breastfeeding women. GP practices could distribute the low cost Healthy Start supplements to all their clients.
