Bone Health in Children

Osteoporosis, a disease which used to be associated with old age is affecting more and more children now. Utmost care for your child’s bone health should be given during his/her formative childhood years. This will go a long way to build a strong framework of bones benefiting the child in later years. If the dietary intake of calcium/vitamin D by children and adolescents is below the recommended levels of adequate intake, the children will be unable to develop their optimal bone mass, which can put them at the risk of osteoporosis.

So true, what we eat in our early years determines how we would fair in the later years, more so for our calcium intake. Not many people know that if the body is deficient in calcium, it is programmed to rob the bones of calcium to fulfill its other calcium needs.. this leads to brittle and weak bones in later years. The recommended daily allowance or RDA of calcium for children (4-8 yrs) is 1,000 mg a day and for 9–13 years : 1,300 mg a day.

how many almonds can be given to a 3 year old child? My daughter loves almonds but someone told me that we should not give more than 2 almonds a day to children. Is this correct? I understand that excess is wrong but what is a generally acceptable quantity?
