- Experts recommend getting calcium from food first, rather than supplements.
- Getting enough calcium from food can also indicate a healthy diet in general (Rafferty and others, 2011), and calcium is a key nutrient in the DASH—Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension—diet (Sacks and others, 2001)

Simple calculation, bug on plan part

This app is good for checking how much calcium your diet gave you yesterday.

On an iPhone 6, the part about planning for greater calcium intake is inaccessible on the screen.
