Hello My Name Is...
•Most children are not getting the 1000 mg of calcium per day required for the maintenance of healthy teeth and bones. Some good sources of calcium are as follows:
•8 oz. milk-300 mg
•8 oz. calcium fortified orange juice-300 mg
•2 oz. American cheese-300 mg
•6 oz. yogurt-225 mg
•½ cup collard greens cooked-178 mg
•After age 3, all children should drink low fat or skim milk. The good news is that the calcium content remains the same no matter what percentage of fat is contained in the milk.
