Health and Human Development - High calcium intake

High calcium intake

Refer back to calcium in the section on nutrients. High calcium intake can
interfere with the absorption of other minerals, increase incidence of
kidney stones and is usually related to excessive intake of milk. Too much
milk in young children can replace other essential foods in the diet.

Milk needs to be reduced to recommended levels for age. Increase water
intake and possibly decrease intake of other milk products such as yoghurt
and cheese.
