Are You Getting Enough Calcium?

by North Memorial

Osteoporosis occurs mostly in people over 50. Calcium is vital for bone health. Milk, yogurt, cheese, calcium-fortified soy milk, cereal and fruit juice are good sources.

Ways to add calcium:

  • Top crunchy breakfast cereal with creamy fruit yogurt
  • Use milk instead of water when you prepare your hot cereal
  • Toss grated cheese on your salad, on a baked potato or into pasta dishes or mashed potatoes
  • Add powdered milk to soups, casseroles, sauces and beverages

Women over age 50 and men over age 70 need at least 1,200 milligrams of calcium a day.

If you are not able to drink milk due to lactose-intolerance, try lactose-free milk and calcium-fortified food. Consult with your doctor about taking a calcium supplement with vitamin D.
