The Editor’s Pick paper for November/December is focused on data from the ALSPAC cohort, ‘Sources of vitamin D and calcium in the diets of preschool children in the UK and the theoretical effect of food fortiﬁcation‘. Cribb and colleagues report that in a cohort of 755 children aged between 18 months and 3.5 years all children had vitamin D intakes below UK recommendations. Among this group in the population the main sources of vitamin D in the diet were milk, fat spreads and fortified cereals. The authors calculated that fortifying milk with 2 micrograms of vitamin D per 100 g would be sufficient to deliver sufficient dietary vitamin D to children of this age.
