Since a baby, we know that drinking milk can help us grow and strengthen our bones.
This is because milk contains calcium.
What most of us don’t know is that calcium is not just present in milk. As a matter of fact, here are 5 food aside from milk that are jam-packed with calcium.
Yes, you can find loads of calcium in plant foods! Kale is one of the best sources—one cooked cup packs 177 mg of calcium, while one raw cup delivers 53 mg.
It’s even more bioavailable than the calcium in milk, meaning your body has an easier time absorbing it, says Connie M. Weaver, PhD, distinguished professor and department head of nutrition science at Purdue University.
