Getting Enough Calcium

Getting Enough Calcium

Getting enough calcium in our diets is vital for building strong bones and reduces the risk of osteoporosis. If you choose not to eat dairy, or to limit your intake, fear not, there are plenty of calcium rich foods you can enjoy instead. Here are some of my favourites;

  • Leafy greens: Spinach, watercress, kale, bok choy,
  • Spirulina,
  • Almonds
  • Sesame seeds
  • Chia seeds
  • Oranges
  • Broccoli
  • Tahini
  • White beans
  • Dried figs
  • Fortified soy & almond milks
  • Amaranth
  • Yoghurt or kefir
  • Sardines (with bones)
  • Cheese
  • Edamame beans
  • Okra
  • Tofu
  • Quinoa – fairly good
