Health Tip: OSI rule

Eat foods rich in calcium and vitamin D. Calcium and vitamin D are important to your bone health. Eat a balanced diet with a variety of fruits and vegetables, grains, and non-fat or low-fat dairy products that are naturally high in calcium and vitamin D.

Sunshine is also a good source of vitamin D. If you are not getting enough calcium and vitamin D in your diet, supplements can be helpful.
