Calcium and vitamin D are important for your bone health. Learn about foods that are naturally high in calcium and vitamin D. Eat a balanced diet with a variety of fruits and vegetables, whole grains, and non-fat or low-fat dairy products. Sunlight is also a good source of vitamin D. If you're not getting enough calcium and vitamin D in your diet, supplements can help.
