Strong Bones

Calcium + Vitamin D = Strong Bones

Ever wonder why milk is D-fortified? Your body needs high enough levels of D to absorb bone-building calcium.

 Good Sources of Calcium:

Kale, broccoli, milk, yogurt, cheese, fortified orange juice; fortified soy, rice or almond milk

Good Sources of Vitamin D:

Salmon, sardines, canned light tuna, herring, egg yolks; fortified soy, rice, almond or cow’s milk

Combo Ideas
• Grilled salmon with sautéed kale
• Broccoli-cheese omelet
• Tuna melt with lowfat cheese on whole-grain bread
