Vitamin D advice

Vitamin D advice from the Department of Health for people aged 65 and older

Vitamin D is essential for bone and muscle health in people aged 65 and older. Older people need sufficient Vitamin D all year round for bone and muscle health. A recent Food Safety Authority of Ireland report found that older people do not get sufficient vitamin D from their diet or the effect of sunlight on their skin. The Department of Health recommends that people aged 65 and older take a Vitamin D supplement every day to ensure they get the essential amount of vitamin D they need.

    Minding your health

    Looking after your physical and mental health is more important that ever now. Healthy eating and getting regular exercise are vital for health.

    Eating a variety of nourishing foods provides the energy (calories) and nutrients that you need to stay healthy. Hot meals and drinks help to keep you warm, so have regular hot drinks and eat at least one hot meal a day if possible. Eating regularly helps keep levels up during winter.
