In brief: Fish, eggs, dairy
Foods high in vitamin d include fish (salmon, sardines, cod), shrimp, eggs, fortified dairy, shitake mushrooms, and other vitamin d fortified foods (i.
e. Some soymilks). If you are deficient in vitamin d, however, i would recommend that you take oral supplementation and have your blood level rechecked in 12 weeks.

10-15 minutes of natural sunlight exposure is recommended as well.

In brief: Fortified 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.
