Health.com: 14 Surprising Facts About Healthy Bones

Food Can Be Good for Bones, Even Sans Calcium

Calcium-rich food is great for your bones. And even though milk is a good source, it’s certainly not the only one.

Dr. Cosman recommends yogurt and cheese, fortified foods, and calcium-rich foods like almonds and green veggies.

"Some highly fortified foods and drinks have as much—or more—calcium per serving as milk," she says.

Even fruits or vegetables without that much calcium can benefit bones (though research on this topic isn't conclusive). Fruits and veggies might help buffer acids in the body, and high acid content isn’t good for bones, Dr. Cosman says.
