Dietician Gina Sutherland advises reporter Terri that, “It’s never too early to start taking care of our bone health.” In this segment Sutherland advised, “A key ingredient to our bone health is calcium. It plays a huge role in blood-clotting, maintaining a normal heartrate, and normal nerve conduction. If we don’t take enough calcium, our body takes it away from our bones to meet the other functions. I have two boys, one loves milk and the other one not so much. We have to think of creative ways to get milk into his diet so we use almond milk that has the 300mg of calcium.”
