Almond milk has more calcium than regular milk - I use it all the time in smoothies, to cook oatmeal in, etc. Love it!

I wondered the same thing when I was expecting my 2nd and discovered that milk products made me sick (he was lactose intolerant like his dad).

I had to hunt down other sources of calcium from plant products and nuts, mainly.
I'm not sure I remember them all, so it's great the other respondent gave you a link.

That's been so many years ago - now I'm sure there are many other options (like non-dairy milk, and even milk with additives to help those who are lactose intolerant).

Best wishes in your healthy journey.

There are tons of dairy-free calcium sources. Anything from calcium-fortified milk alternatives (soy milk, almond milk, even some juices). Lots of green vegetables (bok choy has heaps! as does kale, broccoli...). Tofu. Beans. Even blackstrap molasses! If you do a google search for "dairy free calcium" you will find lots and lots of information, suggestions, recipes etc.

And of course there's calcium supplements, I suppose. But ideally you want to get it from food.
