Get Your Calcium Now

Children’s bodies are growing fast and they need enough calcium to build strong, healthy bones and teeth. If they don’t get enough during childhood, their bones will not reach their potential and they run the risk of fractures and developing osteoporosis later in life. Make sure your child gets the calcium they need every day.

Children can only deposit calcium to make strong bones until about their early 20s
Drinking soda causes calcium to be removed from bones
The majority of children ages 9-18 do not get enough calcium
