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.


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


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
