The correct question is:
How much calcium do teenagers need to consume every day?
How much calcium is in one eight-ounce glass of whole, low-fat or nonfat milk?
How much calcium is in 3 cups of broccoli and 8 ounces of tofu made with calcium?
- The Dietary Reference Intake (DRI) of calcium for females and males ages 11 - 24 years is
- One serving of milk provides about 300 mg. of calcium, so teens can meet their
daily calcium needs with four servings from the milk group.
- Three cups of broccoli and eight ounces of tofu made with calcium each provide about
300 mg. of calcium, so together they provide a total of 600 mg.
