Children should have daily Vitamin D supplements, according to NHS guidelines, but 59% of parents admitted they did not give them to their kids.

The poll, which saw 10,000 UK adults questioned, including 5,800 parents, found that 76% of people didn't know that youngsters are advised to take Vitamin D supplements.
