FAQ - High Calcium Foods  Answer To Frequently Asked Child Medical Question

High Calcium Foods

HIGH CALCIUM FOODS

How much calcium do you need?

Most women do not get enough calcium through diet alone.  That is why calcium supplements are recommended.  You should take 1200-1500 mg of calcium per day in a divided dose.  Your body can only absorb about 600 mg of calcium at a time, so it is best to take your supplement twice a day.  For example:  600 mg with breakfast and 600 mg with dinner.  It is best to take your calcium supplement with a meal to increase the absorption of the calcium.

Where can I get calcium?

If you would like to increase the amount of calcium you get through your daily food choices, please use the following chart.
