Don't like to drink milk or eat milk products, like yoghurt? Then you'll have to make a point of getting your daily calcium fix by eating other foods.

Take action:
Wheat bread can be a good source of calcium if you consume a lot of bread – just make sure that you're not ingesting too many calories in the process; green, leafy vegetables such as kale, broccoli and bok choi are good sources of calcium – eat some of these veggies every day; the calcium in soybeans is also well-absorbed – try to include soy dishes like tofu in your diet on a regular basis.
