Suggestions for stronger bodies
By Diana Kohnle
(HealthDay News) -- Building stronger bones should begin in childhood and continue for the rest of your child's life.
The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics suggests these foods:
- Offer a good source of calcium at each meal, such as milk, cheese, yogurt, almonds, figs, broccoli, soybeans, turnip greens or tofu with calcium added.
- Seek natural sunshine for more vitamin D. Also offer eggs, fatty fish and fortified foods, such as milk and orange juice. Ask your pediatrician if your child needs vitamin D supplements.
- Give your child edamame, black beans, spinach, peanut butter, almonds, kidney beans, avocado and whole-wheat bread, which are good sources of magnesium.
- Offer green beans, peas or leafy green veggies (such as kale, broccoli and spinach) for vitamin K.
