    Hi people - for the last two months, I've been using MyFitnessPal to record everything that I eat, and it is helping me to lose weight and get healthier, but one persistent problem that I have is that I rarely get near 100% of my RDA of vitamin A. I get an okay amount from the milk on my cereal in the morning and a decent amount from 250ml of Tropicana with vitamin A that I drink every morning (which also gives me my RDA of vitamin C), but that's about it. But I'm struggling to find much other food and drink that I like that contains vitamin A. Some protein bars come with a decent amount of vitamin A, but they also come with a decent amount of vitamin C, which isn't ideal as I'm already getting my RDA of vitamin C from the aforementioned Tropicana.

    Are there any other food and drink sources of vitamin A that I might have overlooked? (You can mention stuff with even just a little bit of vitamin A if you like, every little helps...)

    carrots, leafy stuff (like spinach, lettuce), apples, and most things dairy, oily fish.
    Apparently liver is a very rich source of vitamin A, things like liver pate may help But you should only have liver once a week max according to some websites.
    Have a look online - there's lot of websites which give information on this kind of stuff

    After posting I did actually think of carrot juice - there's some sold in my local Tesco that seems to have a ridiculous amount of vitamin A in it. Philadelphia spread seems to have some vitamin A in it too.

    Ignore the excess Vitamin C, the beautiful thing about it is once you have enough your body just pisses away any excess Vitamin C.
