Towards an adequate intake of vitamin D. An advisory report of the Health Council of the Netherlands.
Eur J Clin Nutr 2009; 63(12):1455-7EJ

Abstract

In this report, the Health Council of the Netherlands advises the government on the best policies to achieve an adequate vitamin D supply for the Dutch population. People with a dark skin, those who spend little time outdoors, pregnant and lactating women, veiled women, elderly and children who do not receive vitamin D supplements or infant formula are at risk of vitamin D deficiency. To improve this, more consistent information about vitamin D should be provided. Spending at least 15 min a day outdoors in combination with a healthy diet generates sufficient vitamin D in children and adults with a light skin. All other groups need additional vitamin D from supplements (10-20 microg/day). Fortified foods can only provide part of the additional vitamin D needed.
