Strong Bones For The Win #OAM

Children build the most bone density during their teen years. With healthy bone habits, they can make a sizable deposit into their “bone bank” account that closes by about age 30. The more bone density they can put away when they’re young, the longer it will last as they get older.

To live a bone healthy life kids must:

  • Eat 3-4 servings of foods that are rich in calcium.
  • Take a vitamin D supplement.
  • Get at least 30 minutes of activities with impact, like jumping rope or hopscotch!
  • Use good posture, especially on mobile devices.
  • Do not smoke or vape.
  • Cut back on sugary drinks.
  • (For girls) If you have not gotten your period by age 15, talk with your mother and doctor

To support bone health awareness:  

  1. Join our Thunderclap through Twitter, Facebook, and/or Tumblr to get the word out to your followers and friends. Be sure to ask them to sign up for the Thunderclap, too!
  2. On Thursday, May 18, our message will be shared across the country at the same time for a big impact!
