How Can I Get Enough Calcium in My Diet

A: Dairy foods are the best source of calcium and eating at least 3 serves (200ml milk, tub of yogurt, slice of cheese) each day will meet most people’s calcium requirements. If you don’t like milk, consume more cheese and yogurt. Alternatively, you could try a soy beverage – just makes sure it has calcium added. Other good sources of calcium include tinned fish such as salmon and sardines where the bones are eaten, oysters, almonds, tahini and tofu.
