Calcium and vitamin D are renowned to be good for bone health so it's really important to get enough of these nutrients in your diet.

Calcium rich foods include dairy cheese and milk but just as good Green, leafy vegetables such as spring greens, kale and spinach have loads of calcium in too. It's also found in sardines beans, tofu and other foods.

Sunlight is the major and your main source of vitamin D, since your skin produces it when exposed to the sun.

However, as you get older, your skin gets less efficient at making it. Walk every day.

If you aren't out in the sun much or if you cover up your skin, either taking a good quality supplement or increasing food sources of vitamin D is very important.

Rich dietary sources include oily fish, Fish oil, eggs and foods fortified with vitamin D.
