Wild fatty fish: It can be challenging to get sufficient Vitamin D through diet alone. Exposure to the sun (uncovered arms and legs for 15-20 minutes without sunscreen) is the best way to increase Vitamin D levels. Otherwise fatty fish are probably the best dietary source of Vitamin D. Choose wild caught (not farm-raised) salmon, mackerel and trout for some of the highest levels of vitamin D.

Fish, mostly.: Cold water fish like salmon and herring are fair sources of vitamin d. Whale blubber is an excellent source, which is why eskimos that eat it are rarely vitamin d deficient.
