Compare the following foods to the

Calcium (mg) /Calories

1 cup collard greens 357mg/ 60

3 oz. sardines with bones 350mg /190

1 cup fortified orange juice 300 mg/109

3 oz. canned salmon with bones 200 mg/130

1 T. blackstrap molasses 172mg/ 50

1 cup turnip or beet greens 165-200mg /30-40

1 cup rutabagas, mashed 115 mg/95

1 cup white beans, cooked 130mg/ 250
