If an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, it's good to know that a convenient pantry product can help fight osteoporosis - by the spoonful. One easy and delicious way to automatically increase your family's calcium intake is to sprinkle nonfat dry milk into your recipes. With no fat and only 15 calories per tablespoon, nonfat dry milk not only adds bone-building nutrients, it also contributes other good things.

Since low lifetime calcium intake is one of the risk factors for osteoporosis, it makes sense to start building stronger bones in childhood and continue through life. Fortified with vitamins A and D, with D aiding calcium absorption, nonfat dry milk can also enrich smoothies, egg dishes, dips, puddings, mashed potatoes, soups and sauces.
