As a lover of all things dairy I was a little panicked when from around a year old, my son didn’t share my passion for milk, cheese, yogurt etc. I feared the worst. Dairy is a rite of passage, critical for healthy development, right? Wrong!Calcium, not dairy, is absolutely vital for strong bones and teeth, as well as muscle and heart function. So, after calming down and doing a little research, I realised, although initially taking a bit of getting used to, it was not the end of the world that my child didn’t like it. PHEW! Although dairy is a good source of calcium it’s not the only one - which is good news for parents of children with intolerances or those who just don’t fancy the taste! Calcium can be gained from lots of other things like calcium fortified soymilk, tofu, leafy green vegetables, fish (canned fish with bones is an excellent source), calcium fortified cereals and even orange juice. There are also non-dairy based calcium supplements like Blackmore’s new Origins Wholefood Calcium, which, ideal for the whole family, can taken by sprinkling over food or mixed with juice or water – check age-based calcium RDI’s for dosage requirements as needs change with age (see below). And, before starting any dietary supplementation, seek medical advice first.
Do you have a child that is intolerant or doesn't like dairy? How do you make sure they get the calcium they need?
