I didn’t drink a whole lot of milk as a young adult.  In fact, I can remember once claiming to my grandmother when I was young that I was lactose intolerant just so I wouldn’t have to drink it.  Of course she had known me all my life, so I’m not sure why I thought it would work.

Fortunately Bubbles doesn’t have that problem.  Milk is the first drink she asks for.  I thankful that is comes so easy, at least for the time being, because 95% of bone building happens by age 20. Females are born with lower bone density than men which creates a higher need for daily calcium intake, so we really need to step up our game, in general.

Both Sissy and I could take a lesson from Bubbles.  I know that I don’t get the amount of calcium I should, and I doubt that with the heavy schedule of a college senior that Ashley does, either.  She and I aren’t alone, though: almost 70% of women, on average, are calcium deficient, and for teen girls specifically, that number jumps to 86%.

Viactiv Calcium Soft Chews

Viactiv Calcium Soft Chews #ViactivYoursandHers

So recently I’ve been taking Viactiv Calcium Soft Chews.  Just two convenient Soft Chews provides 100% of most women’s recommended daily allowance of calcium, plus vitamins D3 and K.  Plus they come in two great flavors, chocolate (which I gave to Ashley) and caramel (which I kept for myself), so I almost feel like I’m getting a little treat when I take them.

  1. I’ve tried to encourage my wife to take a calcium supplement, but she just won’t listen. She’ll be sorry someday!

  2. Caramel is my favourite. Caramel that’s good for you? Sign me up!

  3. I would definitely try the caramel. I’m really bad at getting enough calcium in.
