Honor Society of Nursing (STTI) answeredAdding calcium to the diet and bone-strengthening exercises can help bones stay strong and healthy. As women age, it is important to add calcium through dietary changes or supplements. Some calcium-rich foods are dairy products, broccoli and tofu prepared with calcium sulfate (check the nutrition label). Be sure and look at low-fat options so you can continue to manage weight as you age. Weight-bearing exercise such as walking or strength training can help make bones strong and healthy.
