Not sipping milk with every meal? 5 other awesome ways to get a calcium boost


The era of the milk mustache is, sadly, a thing of the past. Gone are the “Got Milk?” commercials and the nostalgic moo juice with every meal. Milk consumption in the U.S. has been in sharp decline since the ‘70s, particularly among tweens and teens. The thing is, you’ve gotta get that calcium (and some vitamin D) somehow, right? Here are our five favorite alternative sources of the good stuff. Who’s growing up tall ‘n’ strong? This girl!

 

Other “milks”

Almond and soy milks are growing in popularity about as quick as milk is declining. There are tons of options on the market, from unsweetened basics to vanilla and chocolate flavors. All of the options you’ll see in the grocery are fortified with vitamins and minerals, which means they have just as much calcium as the jug of milk in the refrigerated section—sometimes, they have more!

 

Salad

A handful or two of raw kale or spinach gives ya 10 to 25 percent of your daily recommended allotment of calcium. Top it with crunchy veggies, dried fruit, your favorite protein, sliced nuts and a tangy vinaigrette and you’ll have a tasty appetizer for just about any meal.

 

Cheese

Whichever you pick, you’ll be gobbling down 20 percent of your calcium for the day in a single serving. We’re digging sharp cheddar with apples, pepper jack with crackers and hard Romano with honey.

 

Cereal

Lots of your favorite a.m. picks are fortified with all sorts of vitamins and minerals, including bone building-block calcium. The key here is to keep the sugar content in mind. For a balanced breakfast that’s also pretty tasty, serve up a bowl of regular Cheerios, Kix, Wheaties or Total with 2 percent milk.

 

Orange Juice

Many brands are now offering calcium-enriched juices. We’re loving Simply Orange’s calcium- and vitamin D-enriched juice for a small glass with breakfast. It’ll give ya 35 percent of the good stuff. Don’t guzzle it all day—juice packs a ton of sugar and calories that feel pretty much invisible as ya sip.
