The Department of Health warns that rickets is on the rise in children and advises extra Vitamin D.

Ministers warn on rickets on rise in children

Extract from the Telegraph:

"The disease is making a resurgence, a spokesman for the Department of Health has warned.

Studies suggest between seven and eight children per 100,000 have vitamin D deficiency. But just 15 minutes of summer sunlight a day is enough for the body to manufacture the required amounts.

Families who qualify for the Healthy Start scheme can obtain free supplements. Dawn Primarolo, the health minister, said: "We particularly encourage women who are pregnant or breastfeeding to take vitamin D, to protect the health and well-being of their baby.""
