Vitamin D – where are you?

On a recent search for vitamin D supplements (at the dose recommended by the Department of Health in pregnancy) I was surprised to find that they could not be purchased. The correct amount can be found in other supplements for pregnancy such as Lloyds own brand products and Pregnacare but if you don’t want to have all the other things which are not recommended then you are stuck.
What does the Department of Health make of this?
Is it a campaign we need to start? Or are we satisfied for women to be forced to take other vitamins and minerals that don’t really want to have to take to get their vitamin D?
