Calcium is not only important for bone health, but some studies show calcium along with vitamin D may help protect against cancer, diabetes and heart disease. Since our bodies do not produce calcium, we need to get this important mineral from other sources. Unfortunately, many of us do not get the recommended amounts of calcium and vitamin D from our usual intake.
Join Jill Kwasny, MS, RD on Thursday, April 21st at 10:00am, in the Yardley Mccaffrey’s Food Market to learn about many other calcium sources, other than dairy products: “Calcium, Vitamin D and Your Health.”
Find out if you are consuming the recommended amount of calcium each day. Explore fun ways to incorporate more calcium in your diet. They will be upstairs in the bistro area.
Come prepared to sample a delicious, calcium-rich dish! Please RSVP to Jill at mccaffreys/events, firstname.lastname@example.org or 215-750-7713.
