To children that are 0-6 months old, if they suck mother’s milk completely, they won’t be provided with enough outside calcium because the amount of calcium in mother’s milk is only sufficient to adapt children’s demand.

To provide enough calcium for little babies, parents should give scientific diet for babies. Milk and finished products from milk (cheese, yoghurt…); they are source of foods containing calcium most. Whole milk and fresh milk have the similar content of calcium. Moreover, kinds of vegetable that have dark green, sea foods (shrimp, crab, oyster), fish, bean… are sources that provide natural calcium for the body.

Besides diet, parents should pay attention to let children sunbathe, exercise under sunlight regularly to improve absorption of vitamin D and calcium.
