Our expert says:
The RDA for calcium for this age group is 800 mg per day. 1 cup of milk will already supply 300 mg and if he eats 30g of cheese he will obtain another 300 mg. If you think that he is not getting sufficient calcium then he could take Caltrate every second day or even just 3 times a week should be sufficient.
