Key words: Vitamin D supplementation, Newborn, North-East Italy

Background - In 2008 the American Academy of Paediatrics (AAP) recommended the administration of 400 UI/die of vitamin D to all newborns.
Aims - The aim of this study was to verify the adherence to current guidelines in birth centres of the three regions in North-East Italy (Triveneto).
Materials and methods - In the months of February and March 2012 a questionnairewas sent to all 64 nurseries to verify whether the intake of vitamin D was recommended for all healthy newborns as a matter of department, and in what way, shape and dose was prescribed.
Results - It resulted that 93.8% of birth centres prescribed vitamin D at discharge of healthy newborns and 89.8% prescribed it indiscriminately. All prescribed vitamin D in writing, at a dose of 400 UI/die in 93.1% and 27.6% in pure form.
Conclusions - Adherence to guidelines regarding the recommendation to give supplemental vitamin D to newborns was optimal in the regions of Triveneto.
