Be Mindful of These Bad-for-Bone Actions

Just as important as what kids do to promote bone health is what they don’t do. Bone health can be compromised in these critical years by:

• Smoking
• Drinking alcohol
• Dieting and disordered eating
• Undereating for athletic training which can result in compromised hormonal status
• Absent or missed menstrual periods

Providing that children receive the best interplay of nutrients and exercise, while avoiding practices that harm bones, they can maximize their bone saving potential.
