It is important to get plenty of calcium in the foods you eat. Calcium is found in many foods. You can get recommended amounts of calcium by eating a variety of foods.
Foods rich in calcium include
• Milk, yogurt, and cheese are the main food sources of calcium for the majority of people in the United States.
• Kale, broccoli, and Chinese cabbage are fine vegetable sources of calcium.
• Fish with soft bones that you eat, such as canned sardines and salmon, are fine animal sources of calcium.
• Most grains (such as breads, pastas, and unfortified cereals), while not rich in calcium, add significant amounts of calcium to the diet because people eat them often or in large amounts.
• Calcium is added to some breakfast cereals, fruit juices, soy and rice beverages, and tofu. To find out whether these foods have calcium, check the product labels.
The exact amount of calcium you need depends on your age and other factors. Growing children and teenagers need more calcium than young adults. Older women need plenty of calcium to prevent osteoporosis. People who do not eat enough high-calcium foods should take a calcium supplement.
