    Recent research has shown that a serve of eggs contains up to 82% of adult daily vitamin D requirements. This research will investigate the role eggs play in preventing vitamin D deficiency. Participants will eat eggs five days a week, and initially assessed for vitamin D levels then re-tested after 3 months. This information will be used to continue to promote the value of eggs in a healthy diet to health care professionals and the community.
