BC Dairy Association has developed an easy way for you to check if you are getting enough protein: FoodTrack—Check on Protein. Download a copy to see if you are getting enough protein from the foods you eat and to plan ways to improve if you need to.

Did you know that higher protein intakes are associated with higher bone mineral density?

You need to get enough calcium as well. In the words of researcher Robert Heaney,"calcium and protein interact constructively." You need enough of both calcium and protein to fully realize the benefit of each nutrient on bone.

Check out if you are getting enough calcium by using the Calcium Calculator™, available online or by download.
