Nutrition and Bone Health

Nutrition is crucial to strong bones. They are rich in calcium, vitamin D, vegetables, meat and cereals. Poor bone health can cause conditions such as rickets and osteoporosis and increase the risk of breaking a bone from a fall later in life.

Bones play an important role in providing support and shape to the body and facilitating freedom of movement. Osteoporosis is a silent condition of the bones which gradually causes them to become weak and more likely to fracture. It is important to look after our bones through proper nutrition and exercise in order to help prevent the development of this disease.

Good sources of calcium include low-fat dairy products, and foods and drinks with added calcium. Good sources of vitamin D include egg yolks, saltwater fish, liver, and milk with vitamin D. Some people may need to take nutritional supplements in order to get enough calcium and vitamin D. The charts below show how much calcium and vitamin D you need each day. Fruits and vegetables also contribute other nutrients that are important for bone health.
