What it is

Calcium is a special nutrient that helps our bodies stay strong and healthy. It's like the building blocks for our bones and teeth, making them strong and sturdy. We can find calcium in foods like milk, cheese, yogurt, and leafy green vegetables. It's part of a big family of nutrients called minerals, which are like tiny helpers that keep our bodies working properly. Calcium is one of the most important minerals because it helps us grow up big and strong.

Health Benefits

Calcium is like a superhero for your body. It helps keep your bones and teeth strong, just like how iron strengthens a shield. When you have enough calcium in your body, it also helps muscles contract properly - think of it as the fuel that keeps them moving smoothly.



If you don't get enough calcium, problems can arise! Your bones might become weak or brittle over time which could lead to conditions like osteoporosis where they break easily. Calcium also plays an important role in keeping our heart beating steadily and helping blood clot when we get hurt.



So remember to include foods rich in calcium in your diet because this nutrient is essential for maintaining strong bones, healthy muscles and even a happy heart!
