            A word from the dietitian...

            Vitamin D deficiency is becoming common in society, as we slip slop slap to avoid sun exposure. Recent research has shown that a few mushrooms (provided they have been exposed to the sun for a few hours) can provide us with our daily recommended intake of Vitamin D, which is great news for our bone health. Another reason to tuck into some mushies!
