Smile! Strong bones and teeth—we all need calcium. And did you know it’s an especially vital nutrient for children?
- In addition to using calcium to build bones, kids’ bodies require calcium to help maintain proper muscle, blood vessel and nerve cell function.1
- Studies suggest that consuming adequate calcium early in life—when peak bone mass is being developed—may help support bone health throughout life.2
- 80% of girls and 75% of boys ages 4–18 don’t get enough calcium.3
- Some Horizon dairy and snack products are a good source of calcium. Horizon mac and cheese is a good source of calcium as prepared.
