At Sunny D we want to tell you all about vitamin D, and why you can find it in all our Sunny D juice drinks. It's Delightful. Delicious. Drinkable.
Foods with Vitamin D
Vitamin D only occurs naturally in a few foods. Things like oily fish and eggs. Kids aren't normally that keen on oily fish such as mackerel, sardines and salmon. Not very attractive. Tastes a bit, well, fishy.
Vitamin D and Sunlight
A source of vitamin D is summer sunlight on your skin. Not something we see a lot of in Britain in January. Or February. Or March, come to think of it. In fact, we're lucky if we get many rays in the summer.
Health experts reckon you need to spend at least 5 minutes in the sun to make the recommended amount of vitamin D. The good news is that the body can store vitamin D.
Why do we need it?
Everyone needs vitamin D. It helps the normal absorption of calcium. So it's a vitamin which contributes to the maintenance of normal bones and teeth.
So we've made it easy for you and your whole family to get the vitamin D you need every day.
Each 100ml serving of any of our flavours of juice drinks - from Tangy Florida to Juicy Orange Passion or Smooth California, Sunny D – gives you 15% of your recommended daily amount of vitamin D. And a 200ml serving gives you 30%.
Sunny D. The drink packed with sunshine. Vitamin D. The sunshine vitamin. It all makes sense.
We hope you'll love it as much as we do. Available in a one litre bottle, it's available in more than 800 Tesco stores.
Have a good day. Have a Sunny D sunshine day.
