15 Ways to Boost Your Calcium Intake

Because 85% of Us Don't Get Enough...

-- By Liz Noelcke, Staff Writer

There are many easy ways to boost your calcium intake by sneaking these foods into your daily diet:
  1. Add beans to soups, chili, and pasta dishes.
  2. Grate low-fat cheese over soups and salads.
  3. Enjoy a smoothie made with yogurt .
  4. Use milk instead of water in soups, breads, sauces, or salad dressings.
  5. Add milk to tea or coffee in the morning.
  6. Try plain yogurt as a vegetable dip.
  7. Stir some nuts into a yogurt cup as a snack.
  8. Include leafy vegetables in baked casseroles such as lasagna.
  9. Buy juices and cereals fortified with calcium.
  10. Drink skim milk instead of soda at lunch.
  11. Eat hot oatmeal made with milk for breakfast.
  12. Snack on crunchy broccoli instead of potato chips.
  13. Substitute plain low-fat yogurt for recipes that call for sour cream.
  14. Treat yourself to pudding made with skim milk for dessert.
  15. Take a daily supplement, available in capsules or chewable tablets.

It is currently recommended that adults ages 18-50 consume about 1000 milligrams (mg) of calcium a day, while adults ages 51 or older need 1200 milligrams. (It is also worth noting that adequate consumption of vitamin D aids in the absorption of calcium.)
