what foods have vitamin d?

Few natural sources: Fatty fishes (tuna, mackerel, catfish, salmon) are one source. Eggs have some; beef liver has a little. Cod liver oil has a lot. Many dairy products and some cereals are fortified with vitamin d, meaning that vitamin d has been added to them. Of course you can also take a vitamin d supplement or multi-vitamin. Sunlight causes your skin to produce vitamin d, so some call it the sunshine vitamin.

Enriched foods: The flesh of fatty fish (such as salmon, tuna, and mackerel) and fish liver oils are among the best sources. Small amounts of vitamin d are found in beef liver, cheese, and egg yolks. Some mushrooms provide vitamin d2 in variable amounts. Ready-to-eat breakfast cereals often contain added vitamin d, as do some brands of orange juice, yogurt, margarine and other food products.

However, it is almost impossible to get enough vitamin D from food because the requirement for adults to be healthy is 2000-5000 IU daily. Sunlight has been the most important source of vitamin D for humans for most of human history and today, unless you work outside during the day, you do not get enough and will have to take a supplement to get adequate amounts.

Not many: Vitamin d can be found in fatty fish like wild salmon, certain portabello mushrooms, and foods fortified with vitamin d like certain cereals, dairy foods, and drinks like almond milk. Of course, you can almost always get it from sun exposure.

Salmon or Mackerel: Any yogurt, orange juice or food with vitamin d added. Also, sunlight exposure for 20-30 minutes daily will increase your vitamin d level. Check this video i made explaining some basic stuff about vitamin d. http://otwithmd.com/vitamin-d/.
