Other drinks, like orange juice, are also fortified with the vitamin -- giving you about 400 IUs of the nutrient for each 8 ounces. Tip If you're allergic to dairy, try soy or rice milk. Step 2: Eat cereal Grab your spoon, bowl, and favorite cereal. Vitamin D is added to breakfast cereal to start your day right. Step 3: Eat eggs Scramble or poach an egg. Vitamin D is found naturally in egg yolk. Tip Check out the carton of your favorite egg substitute. Many are fortified with D. Step 4: Eat fish Add more fish to your diet. Tuna, salmon, herring, mackerel, and sardines are the top fish picks for Vitamin D. Step 5: Use a Vitamin D supplement Take a daily vitamin D supplement if you aren't able to add D-rich foods to your diet, or enjoy at least 10 minutes of sunshine each day. Did You Know?
