Bone Building Recipes

These recipes pack calcium—and flavor—into meals your entire family will enjoy. Most of the dishes owe their high calcium content to dairy products like milk, cheese, and yogurt.

And while the fruits and vegetables in these recipes contribute some calcium, they also boost your bones by helping your body hold on to the calcium you get from meals and supplements.

These good-for-you foods can also help prevent cancer and heart disease. All recipes are reprinted from EatRight Lose Weight and EatRight Heart Smart, cookbooks created by the UAB Department of Nutrition Sciences.
