  1. Most toddlers and preschoolers do a good job of meeting their calcium needs, but as they get older, especially in the 9-18 year range, calcium intake plummets! It’s good to “train” young children to eat these various calcium foods early on so they will continue to eat them later!

  3. My 4 year old has become extremely picky. However, orange juice is one thing that she will drink. This summer I have been freezing it and making orange popsicles. She loves it!
