Build strong growing bones

Yogurt, cheese and pudding are all calcium-rich, bone-building foods. So are calcium-fortified juice, soy beverages and tofu, as well as dark green vegetables like broccoli and kale.

Still, it takes more than good nutrition to build strong bones. Regular weight bearing activities such as dancing, soccer, running, weight lifting, tennis and volleyball are important since they trigger bone tissue to form.
