Thank you both for your advice! I sometimes wonder if the levels of nutrients in the food I'm eating are truly reflected all the time. For example sometimes my sodium levels are so high, and I think it's down to having to put a processed alternative in my food tracker to get the closest match.
But guess what, my range for calcium is 100-150, and yesterday, thanks to a feta cheese salad, which was delicious, i reached 116!!!! emoticon

If you like them, a lot of green leafy veggies have calcium, and so does canned salmon if you mash the bones in. I seem to get my calcium every day becuase at breakfast I have an 8oz cup of milk (I put milk on cold cereal or make my oatmeal with milk and put the rest in my cofee), I put nicee cheese in my lunchtime sandwich or salad, and I eat 8 oz of yogurt every single day. My multivitamin that I take every night has 200 mg of calcium, and that tops me up!

Not all who wander are lost.

Hi Liz

I have trouble getting the required calcium according to SP too. I think it may be because many of the foods I manually put in to the tracker, such as low fat cheese, don't actually record calcium measurements as it isn't put on our nutrition labels. It is put on some yogurt and milk products but not cheese or ice cream!

If you're regularly getting to 50 or 60% then you are doing much better than me.

Hi guys,
I have recently been plotting additional nutrients with my food tracker, namely iron, sodium and calcium.
I am suprised that most days I am only reaching 50 - 60% of what I should be having of calcium. I have plenty of dairy products such as milk / yogurts everyday.
Does anyone have any tips / suggestions on how I could increase my calcium intake?
Cheers, Liz
