Foods that prevent osteoporosis?

  1. Apr 2, 2007 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    I’m doing a project on osteoporosis and part of it involves bringing in a sample recipe which would be a part of a diet attempting to prevent or cure osteoporosis. The recipe must be rich in something such as calcium because osteoporosis weakens bones which need calcium. Calcium, a mineral, is found in things such as milk.
    What food could I bring in to the class for 30 students to eat which contains calcium? I was thinking of something such as kraft macaroni and cheese but that would be hard to serve to a group of students. Anyone have any ideas?

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    The food should probably contain milk (even if it is in dry form) because milk contains calcium.

    Try this;

    Google "osteoporosis" and click in the first reference, www.FORE.org
    Click on "treatment", then "eat right", then "calcium rich". That should take you to some recipies. Good luck.
