Healthy Bones Action Week (23-29 August 2021)

August 23 2021

Most people don’t think about their bones until they have a fracture or until they reach older age. However, bones are living tissue, constantly in a state of renewal, so building and maintaining bones is a lifelong matter.

Healthy Bones Action Week has called on Australians to protect their bones since 1994. People of all ages are encouraged to take three simple actions to build and maintain healthy bones:

  1. Consume Milk, Cheese and Yoghurt for Calcium
  2. Exercise -Do weight bearing exercise.
  3. Get safe sunshine for Vitamin D

This year Healthy Bones Action Week will embrace the Tokyo Olympics and all that the great sporting event represents in the importance of building and maintaining strong bones and muscles for not only peak athletic performance, but to ensure active lives through every generation. Dairy Australia have partnered with athletes and health and nutrition experts to share their own stories of the importance of dairy in bone and muscle health, discuss the recommended daily intake and how it can be incorporated as part of a balanced diet.
