|Top 9 Super Foods for Strong Bones|
Check the Labels: Reading the nutritional table in a container (also called a food label) can show how healthy or unhealthy food.
Addition of Calcium: Nutritional values do not show how many milligrams of calcium in a food is. Instead, they show the amount of calcium in a food as a percentage of the daily value (written in% GDA or DV%). To calculate milligrams in a food label, look at% daily value of calcium, then add 0 at the end of this output. For example, the girls need 130% DV for calcium per day. 130% of the daily value is the same amount as 1300 milligrams of calcium.
Note: This calculation works only for calcium, not for other nutrients in the food label.
