Non-dairy sources of cal­cium

We are told from a young age that cal­cium is im­por­tant for build­ing strong bones, but what if you can’t eat dairy? Did you know you can get your cal­cium needs from some­thing other than dairy prod­ucts? White beans, or­anges, al­monds, sar­dines, figs, leafy greens and broc­coli all con­tain cal­cium, which the body needs to main­tain healthy bone struc­ture and mus­cle func­tion.
