Did you know?
- Many people do not get enough calcium in their diets.
- People who have low calcium intake throughout life are more likely to suffer from osteoporosis, and have a higher chance of breaking bones. (Osteoporosis Canada, 2010, 2014; Health Canada, 2018).
- 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)

Key App Functions:

- Find out your daily calcium requirements
- Assess your calcium intake from food

Calcium Calculator is a quick and easy tool for assessing your calcium intake, and making a plan to make sure you’re getting enough! You can also explore what foods have calcium, and determine which foods you enjoy contain the most calcium.

This app is free with no ads, because we think tools to support health should be available to everyone.

Do you follow a special diet?
- Calcium Calculator uses a validated food list including a wide variety of foods—vegetables, milk products, plant-based protein and more! Research suggests that focusing on food, instead of calories, is better for long term health. So, whether you have an allergy or are following a keto, vegan or heart healthy style of eating, Calcium Calculator can work for you.

Are you a doctor, dietitian, nurse, physiotherapist or other health care clinician?
- Use Calcium Calculator with your patients or clients to follow up between appointments—so they can sustain healthy habits.
- Show clients how to assess and plan for optimal health using the new demo mode. To use, select "More", then "Show how this app works"

Calcium Calculator was developed by Registered Dietitians (RD), based on a educational behaviour change model, and is a validated assessment tool to determine calcium adequacy.
