Get Your Calcium Rich Foods
You aren’t finished building new bone until after college age!
Diets with adequate calcium help the body to achieve peak bone mass and strong teeth. Calcium-rich foods include milk, yogurt, cheese, calcium-fortified juices and milk alternatives, like soy milk. Some green leafy vegetables, like kale and bok choy, are good sources, too, but you need almost 2 cups, cooked to get the same amount as in one cup milk.
Choose low fat or skim versions of dairy foods to skip the fat of their whole milk counterparts. Need a filling snack at night? Make oatmeal with milk heated in the microwave.
