What should I eat to keep my bones healthy? We went straight to EatingWell advisor Miriam Nelson, Ph.D., author of Strong Women, Strong Bones and an associate professor of nutrition at Tufts University, for expert advice on eating to maintain bone health.



I am lactose intollerant. I have been told the best place to get calcium is through dairy products. Since I am not able to enjoy dairy, I have been told that I can always take vitamins or eat fruits and vegitables. But that does not tell me anything because I do not know which fruits and vegitables have large amounts of calcium. Is there a way to find out which ones I am to eat?
