Allergy Elimination Diet

Calcium plays a vital role in bone formation in children and adolescents. For all individuals calcium is essential for nerve conduction, muscle contraction, blood clotting and membrane permeability.

WHO NEEDS HOW MUCH?

R.D.A. based on age:

0 – 6 months : 400 mg/day
7 – 12 months: 600 mg/day
1 – 10 years: 800 mg/day
11 – 24 years: 800 mg/day

WHAT ARE SOME DIETARY SOURCES?

Dairy products are the highest sources of calcium. Other sources of calcium
must be sought when dairy products are eliminated from one’s diet. Calcium exists naturally in:

kale, raw : 94 mg / cup
broccoli , frozen : 94 mg / cup
broccoli , raw : 72 mg / cup
spinach , raw : 56 mg / cup

In addition to the sources where calcium is found naturally, many commercially available products are calcium fortified. Read the label to determine how much calcium is in one serving.
