You do not have to consume a lot of milk and dairy products to get the required amount of calcium. There are many other ways to get natural calcium that your body can assimilate easily. 1 cup of spinach provides almost the same amount of calcium as 1 cup of low fat milk but with one third of the calories. Collard greens, Swiss chard, and kale are also excellent low calorie calcium sources. Sesame seeds are very high in calcium but they have a higher caloric content. It’s good to know we do not have to rely on milk and milk products for our calcium supply.
