Recommended Daily Intake of Vitamin A —

Most people get enough vitamin A from their diets, but if you have a vitamin A deficiency, then your doctor may suggest vitamin A supplements. People with diseases, such as digestive disorders, or very poor diets, may need a supplement in order to get the recommended daily intake on vitamin A. When including the vitamin A that you get from both food and any supplements that you are taking, the recommended dietary allowance (or RDA) for vitamin A is as follows:

Children:

  • 1-3 years old: 300 mcg/day
  • 4-8 years old: 400 mcg/day
  • 9-13 years old: 600 mcg/day

Adult Females:

  • 14 years old and up: 700 mcg/day
  • When pregnant: 750-770 mcg/day
  • When breastfeeding: 1,200-1,300 mcg/day

Adult Males:

  • 14 years old and up: 900 mcg/day

This is our comprehensive list of Vitamin A rich foods. Hope it helps you come up with a healthy yet delicious diet!
