    What supplements can improve bone health?

    Neither of my children enjoy drinking milk and I know it is one of the best things to eat/drink in order to have strong bones. What are alternatives?

    Try flavouring milk with fruit or icecream or toppings, it is better than not having milk.
    Yoghurt, cheese & icecream are all good sources of calcium too. Using milk in custards & milk jellies might also be acceptable.
    Try soy alternatives fortified with calcium maybe they might prefer that taste.
    Tinned fish with bones, almonds, baked beans & broccoli all contain small amounts of Calcium.
    Encourage daily physical activity outside in the sunlight for Vitamin D production - 15-20 minutes in summer is all that is required.
