Health Zone: Nutrition: Sunny D; 25 Ways to Get Your Daily Quota of Vitamin D


2 bowls Special K

Special K has the highest level of Vitamin D fortification of all the breakfast cereals.

4 bowls Ricicles

Ricicles, Start, Healthwise Bran Flakes, Corn Pops and Honey Loops all have about half the amount that's in Special K.

21/2 slices Victoria Sandwich with buttercream filling

Vitamin D comes from the butter filling and the margarine and eggs used in the cake.

16 litres whole milk

Whole milk is the only type of fresh milk that has any reasonable quantity of vitamin D because it's found in the cream.

Half a can of evaporated milk (200g)

Evaporated milk always has Vitamin D added, so just half a large can provides the daily requirement.

23/4 litres ewe's milk

Sheep's milk has six times more Vitamin D than whole cow's milk but only one and a half times more fat.

1kg feta or goat's cheese

Because goat and sheep's milk are richer in Vitamin D, these are the best cheese sources.

1.8kg cream cheese

With cow's milk cheeses, the general rule is the higher the fat content the more vitamin D. Cream cheese is best (47% fat) followed by parmesan, cheddar, Derby, Leicester and double Gloucester (33-35% fat).

10 x 200g pots Greek (sheep's milk) yoghurt

Creamy sheep's milk yoghurt has over 20 times more Vitamin D than low- fat cow's milk yoghurt.

4 1/2 boiled eggs

Vitamin D is found in the fattier yolks; there is none in the whites.

11/3 duck eggs

Duck eggs are an even more concentrated source of Vitamin D.

121/2 teaspoons soft margarine

Margarine is required to be fortified with Vitamin D and contains about 10 times more than butter.
