  • Add a vitamin. Orange juice with added calcium.

  • Almonds, blackstrap molasses, broccoli, figs, dark leafy greens (spinach, collard, kale, etc.), salmon (w/bones is better), sardines, ocean perch, rainbow trout, cowpeas, white beans, sweet potatoes, oranges, fortified cereals & juices and fortified cow milk substitutes like almond, soy or hemp milk.

  • Fresh fruits and veggies (not canned), beans/peas/nuts, fish. Believe it or not, Dairy is a moot point where calcium is considered. Especially if it has been homogenized and pasteurized. Dairy proteins are the absolute hardest for our bodies to break down, a process which requires copious amounts of Calcium and vitamin D- it actually takes more than what is in the milk to break the proteins down.

  • I would say lots of fruit. Kiwi has a lot more calcium then Oranges believe it or not ! You could also try giving him Almond Milk..its non-dairy I believe.
