Think Beyond Milk for your Teens’ Bone Strength

Strong bones are the result of enhanced calcium levels
Calcium-rich Foods

Apart from milk, yogurt, cheese and pudding are rich in calcium which helps to build strong bones. Calcium-fortified soy beverage and tofu as well as calcium-fortified juice and dark green vegetables are also good sources of calcium.

Along with nutritious food, regular weight-bearing activities are crucial for bones as they trigger the formation of bone tissues. The website contains information about the many other benefits of weight-bearing activities. Dancing, soccer, running, weight lifting, tennis and volleyball are some common weight-bearing activities. Cut down on smoking and soft drinks to pave way for healthy bone formation.
