This four-page, color PDF document describes the new vitamin D recommendations that came out in November 2010. Vitamin D is a nutrient required for optimal bone health and essential for overall health. New recommendations from the Institute of Medicine's Food and Nutrition Board based on current scientific evidence suggest that people of all ages need more vitamin D than was previously thought. This publication lists the amounts of vitamin D found in several vitamin-rich foods and gives guidelines for vitamin D intake. A Purdue news article gives a synopsis of the change in recommendations.
