Make sure your kids have strong bones when they’re young and give them a strong foundation as adults

Ways to Keep Bones in Kids Healthy:
1-Give your children Vitamin D supplements if they aren’t getting enough in their daily diet. Talk to your healthcare professional about how much is needed.
2-Eat foods high in calcium every day, such as dairy products, beans, and green, leafy vegetables.
3-Make sure they get weight-bearing exercise, such as running, or dancing. Pressure builds strong bones.
4-Avoid carbonated drinks. They can leach calcium from your bones, and you are substituting a drink that could be calcium-rich, like milk.
