Three weeks from now we’ll be preparing to celebrate as our oldest daughter get’s married. It seems like just yesterday we were teaching her how to read, tie her shoes, ride a bike, and drive. I wouldn’t trade those moments for the world! (well maybe the learning to drive moments)
One of my favorite mother/ daughter traditions is going to New Your City. We’ve been fortunate to take two trips in the last few year to explore the city, visit thrift stores, eat awesome food, and see some amazing shows.
While I love creating fun traditions with all my girls, I really want to create healthy habits as they grow up and eventually leave our nest to start their own.
Even though she is getting married in a few weeks, I don’t think I’ll ever stop worrying that she is eating healthy, exercising, and taking care of herself.
In fact, 86% of teenage girls have calcium-deficient diets (overall, 68% percent of adult women are calcium deficient). For teen girls, however, this deficiency comes at a crucial time for bone health, since 95% of bone building occurs by the time she’s 20!
Since she works crazy retail hours, many of her meals are on the go, and probably not the healthiest. Unfortunately, she’s just like me in that it’s hard to get us to take vitamins on a regular basis or even at all!
Last month we tried Viactiv® Calcium Soft Chews. They are delicious and come in flavors like chocolate and caramel which is pretty much awesome. I’m not sure what teenage girl would pass on chocolate or caramel, so getting them to try Viactiv® should be pretty easy.
These calcium chews are a great way to supplement your daily intake of calcium and help strengthen bones without having to swallow a gigantic pill.
It is extremely important that women get enough calcium, it helps strengthen bones and teeth and if your body is not getting enough calcium it begins to take it from the bones, decreasing bone mineral density which can eventually lead to osteopenia and osteoporosis.
If you are wondering if you are getting enough calcium this helpful chart shares how much calcium is in the food we eat every day.
I prefer chocolate, which delicious flavor of Viactiv® Calcium Soft Chew would you choose – Milk Chocolate or Caramel?
