Embracing the new normal - a healthy body
► Eat well
The body creates vitamin D from direct sunlight on the skin. However, between October and early March we don't get enough vitamin D and whilst you can get some from certain foods, the NHS recommends that we all consider taking 10 micrograms of vitamin D a day to keep bones and muscles healthy throughout the winter months.
You can buy vitamin D supplements from most supermarkets, pharmacies and health food stores.
