How does my 6-year-old get the protein and calcium she needs without meat and dairy?

I often get asked, how do I ensure my daughter gets the recommended 1000mg of calcium a day without consuming dairy?

Somehow we’ve got it in our heads that we need to drink cow milk in order to get calcium for strong bones. While milk contains calcium, it is not the best or only source of calcium.

As with all animal products, the protein structure in milk is very dense and acidic for our body. This causes our body to actually leak calcium.

Dairy is highly inflammatory, as cows that are raised for milk are put through a highly stressful and constant cycle of pregnancies and birth, therefore the estrogens in the bodies stay extremely high all the time. These hormones are passed to our bodies when we consume their dairy products.

Wholesome soybeans contain high amounts of protein, calcium, and various other phytonutrients, yet no animal hormones (estrogens). Just one cup of soybeans contains over 500mg of non-animal calcium!

Make sure to choose good sources of wholesome soy.

Instead of protein powders, these are some of the whole plant food dietary products that feature beyond-organic whole soybeans as one of the main ingredients.
