To ensure healthy bone and teeth development in newborns and children, the European Society for Paediatric Gastroenterology Hepatology and Nutrition (ESPGHAN) recommends administering vitamin D3 at a dose of 400 IU from birth to the end of the first year.
National Paediatric Associations, as well as newborn guides are in compliance with the recommendation of administering 400 IU of vitamin D3 on a daily basis, and supplementation is required from day 8 until the end of the first year.
After the first year, paediatricians recommend using vitamin D3 at a dose of 400 IU daily in the winter months (October to March).
