Keep an eye on your vitamin D
It's that time of year when we cannot make vitamin D from sunshine.
To keep bones and muscles healthy, it's best to take a vitamin D supplement every day between October and early March. This is especially important because many of us have been indoors more than usual this spring and summer.
You can get vitamin D from most pharmacies, as well as supermarkets and other retailers. Just 10 micrograms a day is all you need – it's the same for kids and grown-ups.
Remember to wash your hands
Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds whenever you get in from outside and before you eat.
If you cannot wash your hands, use hand sanitiser instead. Do not touch your eyes, nose or mouth if your hands are not clean.
