UK Milk producer sets vitamin D day, yet UK milk rarely has vitamin D – March 31 2013

First UK Vitamin D day launched. Yet

One of the few UK milks to be fortified with vitamin D is Growing Up Milk (are there others?)

  • Which has only 100 IU in 300 ml of milk


  • US recommendation is 600 IU daily from age 0 to 70
    to get up to the US RDA, the infant would need to drink 1.8 liters of Growing Up Milk each day
  • Many believe that the vitamin D dose should be proportional to weight, so even more would be needed as child gets older.
    100 IU per kg of infant July 2011, Poland etc.
