The UK Department of Health has two recommendations for nutritional supplements for babies and young children:
1. Vitamin D:
- Babies from birth to 1 year of age who are being breastfed should be given a daily supplement containing 8.5 to 10 micrograms (µg) of vitamin D to make sure they get enough. This is whether or not you're taking a supplement containing vitamin D yourself.
- Children aged 1 to 4 years old should be given a daily supplement containing 10µg of vitamin D.
2. Vitamins A, C and D: All Children aged 6 months to 5 years should be given a supplement that contains vitamins A, C and D.
