Most of us need about 1000 to 1500 mg of Calcium each day. While quite a few of us may know this, many of us don’t really get all the calcium we need. Calcium is a particularly important micro-nutrient for young children and women heading towards menopause and plays a vital role in the growth of children and bone health in older adults.
If you eat all the following foods across a day, you’ll get about 1000 mg of Calcium:
- 2 servings of broccoli (120mg Calcium per 110g serving = 240mg)
- 1 serving of yogurt (260mg Calcium per 200g serving = 260mg)
- 1 serving of spinach (310mg Calcium per 210g serving = 310mg)
- 1 serving of cow’s milk (240mg Calcium per 200ml serving = 240mg)
