Eat for healthy bones with these calcium-rich foods

Filed under:

As we get older, our bones can get brittle, so it's important to get lots of calcium in our diet -- especially women. For some, it's easy -- calcium is in our favourite foods, so we don't have to worry about it. But for other, like those who don't like dairy, getting calcium can be a chore.

If you're looking to add some calcium to your diet, here's a list of things that are high in calcium and good for you:
  • Non-fat milk
  • Ricotta cheese
  • Yogurt
  • Calcium-fortified soy milk
  • Tofu
  • Spinach
  • Sardines -- huh? Really?
  • Swiss Cheese
  • Legumes
  • Almonds
Thanks for the suggestions, eDiets!
