One of the most important things you can do to protect your bones is to incorporate specific foods into your diet.

Here are 6 of the best foods you can eat for stronger bones.

  1. Vegetables, leafy greens with the roots and stalks. This is essential for the iron and calcium, vitamins K and C, along with protein your bones need to stay strong.
