Building Strong Bones in Children

Love your bones – protect your future!

As official nutrient sponsor for World Osteoporosis Day, we’re thrilled to be able to share with you some excellent new material from the International Osteoporosis Foundation (IOF).

But the theme of their latest guide might surprise you...

Building Strong Bones in Children and Adolescents!

Osteoporosis typically affects older adults.

It’s not typically associated with children so bone health is usually way down the list of priorities for most parents.

And yet a solid foundation for the future health of bones is best set while bones are still developing, i.e. during childhood. Establishing a bone-healthy lifestyle early on means the benefits can be reaped throughout life.

In this fascinating guide you will learn about:

  • How to set the foundation for strong bones in later life
  • Bone-building tips for kids
  • The lifestyle impact on bone health
  • The importance of diet and physical activity
  • What not to do when it comes to bone health

We love the IOF’s work and this comprehensive guide is an excellent starting point to build a bone-friendly lifestyle for you and your family.
