Milk products including powdered milk, alternative fortified beverages, nuts, legumes and canned salmon and sardines with the bones are all a source of calcium. When running low on fresh ingredients, look to pantry staples – dried, canned or jarred foods – to help get the calcium and protein you need daily for strong and healthy bones.

This cooking webinar showcases meal ideas using shelf stable staples with calcium and protein. Learn how to make Oven Meatless Meatballs with Emily Richards, Professional Home Economist who also answered your cooking questions.
