Most people get their vitamin D through exposure to sunlight, but certain foods, like yogurt, are fortified with vitamin D.
One cup of yogurt can be a creamy way to get your daily calcium. Stonyfield Farms makes a fat-free plain yogurt that contains 30% of your calcium and 20% of your vitamin D for the day.
And though we love the protein-packed Greek yogurts, these varieties tend to contain less calcium and little, if any, vitamin D.
There’s a reason milk is the poster child for calcium. Eight ounces of fat-free milk will cost you 90 calories, but provide you with 30% of your daily dose of calcium. Choose a brand fortified with vitamin D to get double the benefits.
Can’t get three glasses a day? Try blending milk into a smoothie or sauce .
Just because cheese is full of calcium doesn’t mean you need to eat it in excess (packing on the pounds won’t help your joints!). Just 1.5 ounces (think a set of dice) of cheddar cheese contains more than 30% of your daily value of calcium, so enjoy in moderation.
Most cheeses contain a small amount of vitamin D, but not enough to put a large dent in your daily needs
These tiny fish, often found in cans, have surprisingly high levels of both vitamin D and calcium. Though they may look a bit odd, they have a savory taste that can be delicious in pastas and salads .
