Calcium Rich Foods By Alice V. Roberts

By September 11, 2009 - 1:05pm

The Food and Drug Administration has revised labeling on foods and supplements to provide valuable information about the level of nutrients that help build and maintain strong bones. When shopping for foods, educate yourself in how to read food labels properly.

Good sources of calcium include low-fat dairy products such as cheese, milk, ice cream, and yogurt. Leafy vegetables like broccoli and spinach, and certain seafood like sardines and salmon also contain calcium. Calcium fortified foods like breads, cereals, and orange juice are just as valuable in the daily diet.
