Learn All Your Calcium Options in the Dairy Aisle
Calcium is a very important nutrient for kids—especially young athletes—because it builds strong bones that are less likely to break or sustain injuries from the stress and strain of heavy activity like sports.1 You can find calcium in dairy products, such as low-fat or fat-free milk, yogurt, and cheese. It is also found in many other foods for those who have a dairy intolerance.
Lactose-free milk and milk products have less lactose and provide the same nutrients as regular dairy foods. Nondairy beverages and foods made with soy, almonds, cashews, rice, or coconut also contain the calcium needed for growing bodies. Select a fortified brand, if possible, that contains at least 20–30 percent of the U.S. Recommended Dietary Allowances for calcium, riboflavin, and vitamin B12 values, which are similar to the nutrition you’d find in dairy milk.2
