Infants from 0-6 months need 200 milligrams (mg) of calcium each day; infants 7-12 months need 260 mg; toddlers aged 1-3 years need 700 mg; and children aged 4-8 years need 1,000 mg per day.

The following are foods that are rich in calcium: ready-to-eat cereal, fortified orange juice, plain (cow) milk, soy milk, yogurt, cheese, tofu, canned salmon, cottage cheese, turnip greens, kale, ice cream, bok choy, whole wheat bread, and broccoli.
