    No idea but spending some time (20 mins or so) out in the "sunshine" will put that right. Eat some cereal with milk for brekkie if you don't already they stick vitamin D in that stuff

    If you go to Holland and Barrett you can get some stuff called Spatone :) it is a vitamen D supplement that you drink twice a day it's the stuff I have and is much easier that taking a tablet :)
