Parents play a key role in ensuring their kiddies meet the everyday requirements of calcium intake, in accordance with a recent report from the American Academy of Pediatrics.

The report also states that many children and adolescents are in danger for bone fractures and osteoporosis later in life because of low calcium use when they are small. Three servings of low-fat milk, cheese or yogurt, or up to 1,300 milligrams of calcium based on age, are recommended every day to build strong bones.

'Parents and caregivers frequently know the importance of calcium, but are not sure how to incorporate it within their child's diet,' mentioned Andrea Garen, a registered dietitian at Dairy Council of California.
