10 foods to build strong bones

Eating bone-building foods will help you in the prevention of osteoporosis and osteoarthritis…


  1. Yoghurt: It’s packed with vitamin D, and will give you 30% of your daily calcium intake.
  2. Milk: One glass will also give you 30% of your much-needed intake.
  3. Salmon: It’s great for your bones, and your heart!
  4. Spinach: These leafy greens contain vitamin A and iron as well as fibre.
  5. Cheese: It’s packed with calcium, and a small amount of vitamin D, but don’t go overboard or you’ll pack on the kilos!
  6. Sardines: Open up a tin for a bone boost!
  7. Eggs: The yolks contain vitamin D – so don’t skip them in favour of the egg whites in order to cut calories!
  8. Tuna: This fatty fish is a great source of vitamin D.
  9. Orange juice: A glass of freshly squeezed orange juice contains plenty of vitamin C, which helps with calcium absorption.
  10. Sesame seeds: These contain magnesium, calcium, and vitamins D and K.
