Yes! Although dairy products are the best known source of calcium, they are excluded from vegan and milk intolerant diets. Many vegetables and other food types also provide us with the calcium we require to maintain healthy bones and teeth.
These include bitter green vegetables such as:
- Broccoli, kale, bok choy, okra but NOT spinach.
Fish where you eat the bones:
- Sardines, whitebait, pilchards.
Fortified foods, such as bread and cereals are fortified with calcium in production.
And other sources including: tofu, almonds and figs.
NB. A handful of dried figs contains the same amount of calcium as a glass of semi skimmed milk!
