Dairy produce has always been highlighted as the best source of calcium, but some people can’t take it, either because they have a lactose intolerance or are allergic to cow’s milk protein, while others just don’t like eating dairy foods. If you’re cutting down on dairy foods, you’ll need to ensure that you get sufficient bone-building calcium from other sources. Green leafy vegetables, soya products, sardines and anchovies, almonds, sesame and sunflower seeds are all good alternatives.
