Tip 192: vitamin D

Vitamin D is required with calcium and phosphorus for bone mineralisation. ESPGHAN recommend 20-25 µg per day but this is difficult to achieve and prolonged supplementation at this level might be harmful, thus the aim is to provide 10µg/day. Abidec provides 10µg vitamin D per 0.6ml.
