First of all, you can add milk, yogurt or cheese.

One cup of milk has 300 milligrams of calcium, three-quarters of a cup of yogurt has about 250 milligrams, and hard cheeses can have up to 450 milligrams per ounce and a half.

Canned salmon with the bones is a good way of adding some calcium, but you need to make sure that you're crushing up those bones. Add them to your salmon sandwich or on top of a salad for an extra protein source.

If you're looking for more information about how to increase your calcium intake, ask your local registered dietitian.
