Hi! My name is Sonny. . . 

I am an astronaut. It is very important that I look after my bones as I travel through space.  Illustration of a boy with a jet pack
I would like to tell you about Vitamin D and how important it is for your bones.

What is Vitamin D?

A sun icon with vitamin D inside in text and also an image of two fish under the sunVitamin D is made by your body when the sun shines on your skin. This is why Vitamin D is sometimes called the “sunshine vitamin”.

We also get vitamin D from food such as fish, eggs and supermilk

Why do I need Vitamin D?

Your body needs vitamin D to build strong bones and to keep your bones healthy.
If you do not have enough vitamin D your bones can become weak and soft now or when you are an adult.

What is Altavita D?

Hi! My name is Suzi. . .

I’m here to tell you all about your medicine Altavita D3. 

Altavita D3 is a vitamin D medicine. Your doctor will tell you if your body is not making enough vitamin D and if you need to take a vitamin D medicine.

Why do I need to take Altavita?

You might need to take a vitamin D medicine:

  • If your body is not making enough vitamin D
  • If you are not getting enough vitamin D from the sun
  • If you are not getting enough vitamin D from your food
  • If your body is not able to absorb vitamins such as vitamin D

Why is it important to take my medicine?

Your doctor has asked you to take Altavita to make sure you have enough vitamin D to build strong bones and to keep your bones healthy

It is very important that you take your Altavita in the way that your doctor has asked.
You should not take more Altavita than your doctor has asked.

How do I take my medicine?

You can squeeze the medicine from the bottle into your mouth or onto a spoon. You can also ask an adult to mix it with some milk, yogurt or lukewarm food.
