5. Strong Bones…

Children build 90% of their adult bone mass before they reaching 17 years old, so their calcium intake is vital. Too little and your child risks bone weakness, fractures and conditions such as osteoporosis. So it’s concerning that a recent study showed that only 1 in 10 girls and 1 in 4 boys get enough calcium in their diets. Before the age of eight, children need 1,000mg of calcium per day, and 1,300 afterwards. Meet that target by introducing milk as a drink, providing low-fat dairy snacks and serving leafy green vegetables such as kale.
