Recommended daily intake of vitamin D to optimally benefit from the many advantages of vitamin D on bones, teeth, and development:
Babies up to the age of 1 …………….... 400 IU
Children from the age of 1 ……………... 800 IU
Mothers whose vitamin D levels are sufficiently high pass on vitamin D to their children through breast milk. If the mother does not have enough vitamin D in her body, breast milk is also low in vitamin D.
If the pregnant or breastfeeding woman cannot produce enough vitamin D from the sun's rays, vitamin D experts recommend taking 4000 to 6000 IU of vitamin D per day in the form of a dietary supplement.
Since the vitamin D supply in our latitudes is often not sufficient, doctors nowadays recommend giving the baby 400 IU of vitamin D daily in the first year of life to support the development of bones and teeth.
As soon as the baby drinks an instant milk food that is enriched with vitamin D, this vitamin D intake should be considered. Usually 100 ml of baby food contain 50 IU of vitamin D. If the child drinks 1 liter of baby food per day, this would be 500 IU of vitamin D. Read the information on the packaging of the baby food.
Infants and adolescents also need enough vitamin D to develop strong bones and healthy teeth. If sufficient vitamin D cannot be formed through sun exposure, vitamin D should be taken as a dietary supplement, especially during the winter months.
The main source of calcium for children is dairy products. Older children also ingest calcium through green vegetables, tofu, oranges, or sardines. Soy milk, rice milk or other alternative milk products and breakfast cereals are sometimes fortified with calcium. Calcium and vitamin D together are essential for normal strong, healthy bones and teeth.
It is important to recognise the risk factors for a vitamin D deficiency. Scientists in the Netherlands have determined the vitamin D level of 4,167 children aged 6 years and older to find the causes of a vitamin D deficiency.
It was found that 29.8% of the children had a vitamin D deficiency (<20 ng/ml) and 36.5% had an average high vitamin D level (20-30 ng/ml). Only a third of the children had a sufficiently high vitamin D level for scientists (over 30 ng/ml).
The study identified unchangeable risk factors for vitamin D deficiency, such as the age of the children and their parentage. The older the child, the greater the risk of deficiency. African, Asian, Turkish, and Moroccan children were more deficient than Dutch children or those of other western populations.
The scientists also identified changeable risk factors for low vitamin D levels. It was found that children who watched TV two or more hours a day were 32% more likely to be at risk of vitamin D deficiency than those who watched TV less than two hours a day. Children who played outdoors for at least one hour a day had a 29% reduced risk of vitamin D deficiency than those who spent less than 1 hour outdoors.
The scientists came to the following conclusion: .... The decisive factors for an increased risk of a vitamin D deficiency were older children, more time in front of the TV, less outdoor activity, less cycling, a younger age of the mother, a lower household income, more than 3 children per household, and a higher BMI of the mother.
