Healthy fruits and vegetables

There are 2 easy ways to get your calcium:

  • 1. Eat foods with calcium every day, such as:
    • Fat-free or low-fat (1%) milk, yogurt, and cheese
    • Broccoli, spinach, and other green leafy vegetables
    • Tofu with added calcium
    • Soy-based drinks (soymilk) with added calcium
