The adolescent years are critical in the development of strong bones.
20% of height is added during the teen years. Make the most of it by ensuring you consume enough calcium and vitamin D.
Higher bone mass reduces the risk of fractures.
The protein in milk and dairy products helps build muscle; teens who choose milk instead of sugary drinks tend to be leaner.
Join our study and find out how you can empower your bones.
If you are a healthy person between the ages of 14 and 18, a non-smoker,
