Smile! Strong bones and teeth—we all need calcium. And did you know it’s an especially vital nutrient for children?
- In addition to using calcium to build bones, kids’ bodies require calcium to help maintain proper muscle, blood vessel and nerve cell function.1
- Studies suggest that consuming adequate calcium early in life—when peak bone mass is being developed—may help support bone health throughout life.2
- Only 25 % of boys and 15% of girls 9-13 years of age get the recommended daily amount of calcium.3
- Many Horizon dairy products are a good source of calcium.
