Vitamin D Deficiency Among Children

Published onsdag 27 september 2006 kl 11.03

The newspaper “Svenska Dagbladet” reports that more than 80 percent of Swedish children are getting too little vitamin D.

The National Food Administration has studied the eating habits of 2600 school children here.

The worst vitamin D deficiency is reportedly among those with immigrant backgrounds. The most common source of the vitamin is exposure to sunlight, which can be a problem during the Swedish winter, especially for people with darker skin.

Vitamin D is also added to milk, and the findings may reflect children drinking less milk.
