    There are many foods that come calcium fortified such as orange juice, cranberry juice, and some breakfast cereals. Salmon and baked beans are also a good source of calcium. Make sure you are supplementing vitamin D in your diet, as it assists the body in absorbing calcuim.

      for salmon to be good for calcium, one must eat the bones. dark leafy greens have calcium.

      I should have specified, canned salmon, 3 ounces have approximately 180 mg of calcium

    Pistachios are a great calcium snack plus some other good nutrition. I plan on adding them to my diet just finding this out and not knowing just what exactly you get in milk.

    I find supplements to be the easiest and most efficient way to give my family what we need.  My daughter and I both are on medication that can lead to bone loss later in life.  We are both lactose intolerant.  I found a great supplement that is a chew containing both Calcium and Vitamin D.  The Vitamin D helps your body process the Calcium properly.  The chews are tasty, fun and we simply leave the bottle on the counter so we do not forget to take them.  The ingredients are all natural.  It works great for us!
