Thank you YMI0625 for this suggestion for a challenge!!
Did you know most people get enough calcium and vitamin D. Many foods are fortified with calcium and vitamin D, and your body uses sunshine to make its own vitamin D.
Calcium is in foods such as milk, cheese, and yogurt. Vegetables like broccoli, kale, and Chinese cabbage have calcium. You can get calcium if you eat the soft edible bones in canned sardines and canned salmon. Foods with added (fortified) calcium include some cereals, juices, soy drinks, and tofu. The food label will show how much calcium was added.
Vitamin D is in foods such as salmon, tuna, and mackerel. These are some of the best foods to eat when you are trying to get more vitamin D. Other foods that have vitamin D, but in small amounts, include cheese, egg yolks, and beef liver. You can also get vitamin D from fortified foods such as milk and some cereals, orange juices, yogurts, margarines, and soy drinks.
Your challenge today is to try to meet your calcium levels, as specified on your Nutrition Page.
Don't track it on your Nutrition Page?
Go to the bottom of your Nutrition Tracker. On the right hand side is a series of 'buttons'. Click the one that says "Change Nutrition Goals". It should give you a range. Click here for more info www.sparkpeople.com/community/help_answer.
