6 Calcium-Boosting Snacks

Up your calcium intake with these 6 yummy snacks

You’ll have all the bone you’re ever going to have by your early 30s. Protect it by getting 1,000 mg of calcium per day.

Luna-Tic

You know these energy bars are full of good-for-you stuff (iron, fiber) — but did you know that they also come in this protein-packed version, which has 25 percent of the day’s calcium, too? Luna Protein Bar in Cookie Dough; $1.39

Fig Out

This new, luxuriously rich Greek yogurt comes in fab flavors. One serving has 10 percent of the day’s calcium. Voskos Exotic Fig; $1.49

Almondine

Almonds are packed with calcium — and we’re eating up these sea-salted bags that get the crunchy-salty-nutty quotient right. Blue Diamond Oven Roasted Almonds Sea Salt 100-calorie packs; $3.99 for seven

Italia Lite

Prewrapped 35-calorie cheese wedges boost your calcium intake without packing in the calories. The Laughing Cow Cheese in Light Mozzarella, Sun-Dried Tomato & Basil; $3.79 for eight

Gone Fishin’

We know: Sardines seem a little too, well, fishy. But they’re similar in taste to canned tuna. One of our editors was a definite skeptic — but she was converted at first bite. Each serving has almost half of the day’s calcium. Cole’s Portuguese Sardines; $5.39

Body Builder

This soy-milk protein drink supplies 30 percent of the day’s vitamin D, which is necessary for the body to absorb the calcium it needs. CalNatu-rale Svelte in Spiced Chai; $3.29
