Achieving an adequate vitamin D status through dietary intake of vitamin D is difficult in older adults as food sources are limited and few foods are fortified with vitamin D. A recent analysis of dietary survey data across eight European countries (Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, The Netherlands, Poland, Spain and the United Kingdom) showed intakes of Vitamin D to be universally of concern. The proportion of subjects who had a vitamin D intake below the Lower Reference Nutrient Intake (LRNI) was over 90% in many age and sex groups.
