Sources of Calcium in Your Food

Lucette Talamas, Registered Dietitian at Baptist Health South Florida, recommends drinking low-fat, 1% or skim milk, so the label has to say it is low in saturated fats, so you can choose lower saturated fat cow's milk, cheese and yogurts.

She also explains there are milk alternatives, such as soy milk and almond milk, for example. But you have to always read the label, because some milk alternatives are not fortified in calcium or vitamin D, so you might be thinking you are drinking calcium from that almond milk and that company did not fortify it.
