Keep in mind that calciums percent Daily Value (% DV), which is a guide to how much of a particular nutrient you should get each day, on food labels is based on the adult requirements of 1000 mg a day. So a cup of milk that was 30% DV for calcium, would be equal to 300 mg of calcium, which would actually be equal to 60% of a toddlers calcium needs for the day. But it would be only about 23% of a teens calcium needs. That means that you can only really use the % DV as a guide to how much calcium your kids are getting from the foods they are eating each day.


Getting enough calcium can be a especially hard if your kids are allergic to milk. These nondairy foods can be good choices for kids with milk allergies who need calcium:

In addition to choosing foods from the following list, you should learn to look at food labels and choose foods that have a high % DV for calcium and at least 20% or more. You may find big differences in the calcium content of foods, even among different brands of the same foods such as cheese, juice, and bread.

Updated October 29, 2007According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, The average dietary intake of calcium by children and adolescents is well below the recommended levels of adequate intake. This can mean that these children will not develop their optimal bone mass, which can put them at risk of fractures and osteoporosis. Understanding which foods are high in calcium can help you ensure that you are encouraging your kids to get enough calcium in their diet by choosing calcium rich foods such as milk, cheese, and yogurt. Remember that children should eat 3 age-appropriate servings of dairy products per day (4 servings per day for adolescents) or the equivalent to get enough calcium in their diet.


Remember that just because your child is eating cheese, that doesnt mean that she is getting a lot of calcium. Check the nutrition label to make sure the cheese has a lot of calcium. And also look for foods made with these calcium rich foods as ingredients, such as a macaroni and cheese (cheese), pudding (milk), and nachos (cheese).

In addition to the large number of calcium rich foods that are naturally found, like milk and cheese, a lot of foods are now fortified with calcium. These can be especially good choices if your child doesnt like to drink milk. 本文来自织梦
