You can get a healthy amount of vitamin D in your diet in several ways. Vitamin D is found naturally in some foods. It is added to other foods by manufacturers. A vitamin supplement is also available to add vitamin D to your diet.

Good natural sources of vitamin D are:

  • fatty fish such as rainbow trout, salmon, canned tuna, herring, sardines, tilapia, and flounder
  • fish liver oil
  • egg yolk
  • different types of raw mushrooms

Vitamin D Foods

Some foods are “fortified” with vitamin D. This means the manufacturer adds it to foods that we commonly eat. Examples of fortified foods include:

  • milk
  • breakfast cereals
  • milk substitutes
  • yogurts
  • cheeses
  • juices

Dietary supplements are also a good source of vitamin D. These can come in pill or a chewable gummy form. Talk to your doctor about how much vitamin D you need every day.
