Big Grin  Children' Calcium Usage Is Key Issue For Parents
Parents play an integral role in ensuring their kids meet the daily requirements of calcium absorption, in accordance with a recent report in the American Academy of Pediatrics.

The report also says that many children and adolescents are at-risk for bone fractures and osteoporosis later in life due to low calcium usage if they are small. Three servings of low-fat milk, cheese or yogurt, or up-to 1,300 milligrams of calcium depending on age, are recommended each day to build strong bones.

'Parents and caregivers often know the significance of calcium, but aren't sure how exactly to integrate it to their child's diet,' explained Andrea Garen, a registered dietitian at Dairy Council of California. 'Since dairy meals provide 70 per cent of calcium within the Western diet, finding methods to include more dairy can make a big difference in a child's long-term wellness and bone health.'

Garen's suggestions include:

As a snack • Find ways to work more milk into the Offer a child yogurt or cereal with low-fat milk for morning meal, and string cheese and flavored milk. We found out about like i said by searching Google Books.

• Serve as-a child's role model: If good diet is important to parents, it'll also be important to their children.

• Insist o-n family meals: Eating together at home can help parents control what their kids eat.
