ABSTRACT In recent years, reports suggesting a resurgence of vitamin D deficiency in the Western world, combined with various proposed health benefits for vitamin D supplementation, have resulted in increased interest from health care professionals, the media, and the public. The aim of this position paper is to summarise the published data on vitamin D intake and prevalence of vitamin D deficiency in the healthy European paediatric population, to discuss the health benefits of vitamin D and to… Expand
Vitamin D in European children—statement from the European Academy of Paediatrics (EAP)
TLDR
There is no justification for routine screening for vitamin D deficiency in healthy children, and an evaluation of vitamin D status is justified in children belonging to high-risk groups. Expand
Vitamin D: An overview of vitamin D status and intake in Europe
TLDR
In most European countries, there seems to be a shortfall in achieving current vitamin D recommendations, and an exception is Finland, where dietary survey data indicate that recent national policies that include fortification and supplementation have resulted in an increase in vitamin D intakes, but this may not be a suitable strategy for all European populations.

Childhood vitamin D deficiency in the UK : diagnosis, clinical consequences and healthcare costs
TLDR
It is suggested that vitamin D deficiency may be over-tested and over-diagnosed, yet under-prevented, among children in the UK. Expand
Vitamin D in Toddlers, Preschool Children, and Adolescents
TLDR
Pediatric vitamin D status is associated with avoidance of rickets and doses in the range of 10–50 μg/day appears to be safe for children and remains a promising intervention that may yet be supported by clinical trials as a method to optimize pediatric health. Expand
Vitamin D Supplementation in Childhood – A Review of Guidelines
TLDR
No such formal guidelines currently exist for Indian children on vitamin D deficiency and supplementation though there is a need to develop one. Expand
Prevention of vitamin D deficiency in children. The state of the problem in the world and in Ukraine
TLDR
Current data on the prevalence of vitamin D deficiency and criteria for its deficiency in children in different countries are presented and the need to follow a strategy based on an individual approach, taking into account physiological characteristics, individual requirements and lifestyle is shown. Expand
Vitamin D and mental health in children and adolescents
TLDR
Results from 25 cross-sectional studies as well as from 8 longitudinal studies suggest a role of vitamin D in the pathogenesis of mental disorders in childhood and adolescence, and findings from supplementation trials seem to support this hypothesis. Expand
Vitamin D and the Neonate: An Update
TLDR
Information is summarized on available data on vitamin D in neonates critically to assess the effect of vitamin D supplementation and its dosage during pregnancy and lactation on clinical outcomes, and studies are needed to evaluate the dose and duration of Vitamin D supplementation to preterm infants. Expand
Vitamin D in adolescence: evidence-based dietary requirements and implications for public health policy
TLDR
Data indicate that vitamin D intakes of between 10 and about 30 µg/d may be required to avoid deficiency and ensure adequacy in adolescents, considerably greater than the current recommendations of 10–15 µG/d. Expand
Iron and Vitamin D Deficiency in Healthy Young Children in Western Europe Despite Current Nutritional Recommendations

Vitamin D supplementation in Swiss infants.
TLDR
The supplementation prevalence in Swiss infants is unsatisfactorily low, and various risk factors were identified and a positive impact of professional counselling on the supplementation rate could be demonstrated. Expand
Vitamin D: still a topical matter in children and adolescents. A position paper by the Committee on Nutrition of the French Society of Paediatrics.
TLDR
It may be justified to start vitamin D supplementation in winter in children 5 to 10 years of age as well as to maintain supplementation of vitamin D every 3 months all year long in children 1 to 10 Years of age and in adolescents. Expand
Vitamin D deficiency: a worldwide problem with health consequences.
TLDR
Vitamin D deficiency causes rickets in children and will precipitate and exacerbate osteopenia, osteoporosis, and fractures in adults, and foods that are fortified with vitamin D are often inadequate to satisfy either a child's or an adult's vitamin D requirement. Expand
Prevention of Rickets and Vitamin D Deficiency in Infants, Children, and Adolescents
TLDR
These revised guidelines for vitamin D intake for healthy infants, children, and adolescents are based on evidence from new clinical trials and the historical precedence of safely giving 400 IU of vitamin D per day in the pediatric and adolescent population. Expand

  • Medicine
  • The American journal of clinical nutrition

TLDR
The available evidence is not sufficient to support the use of bone mineral content or parathyroid hormone concentrations in infants and young children as functional outcomes to define deficient or sufficient levels of 25(OH)D. Expand

TLDR
The data support the need for vitamin D supplementation, and it is suggested that annual oral vitamin D supplements in the autumn would alleviate the problem. Expand

TLDR
The vitamin D status of children living in The Netherlands, but originating from Africa, Central Asia, or Eastern Europe is determined and data indicate that children from African origin would benefit from vitamin D supplementation. Expand
Vitamin D status in a group of Spanish schoolchildren.
TLDR
The vitamin D status of the studied children was likely to improve, and could be ameliorated via a relatively increased consumption of dairy products, fish, cereals, fruits and vegetables, by including foods fortified in vitamin D if necessary, and by increased ‑ but safe ‑ exposure to the sun. Expand
Association of subclinical vitamin D deficiency in newborns with acute lower respiratory infection and their mothers
TLDR
The findings suggest that newborns with subclinical vitamin D deficiency may have an increased risk of suffering from ALRI, and adequate vitamin D supplementation of mothers should be emphasized during pregnancy especially in winter months. Expand
High risk of vitamin D deficiency in children with sickle cell disease.
TLDR
Poor vitamin D status was prevalent in children with SCD-SS and healthy African-American children living in the same geographic area, however, children withSCD- SS were at greater risk for vitamin D deficiency thanhealthy African- American children. Expand
