Hello Professor and class,How much calcium should I be consuming for my gender and age? Well, I am afemale and I am 22 years old. I should be consuming about 1,000 mg of calcium.For my largest meal this week the food items would be: Chicken, corn, pasta,and garlic bread. I believe the food that had the highest amount of calciumwould be the garlic bread or the corn. I believe the food that had the lowestamount of calcium was the pasta. I am not surprised at my findings becausegarlic bread and the corn both had a lot of butter in it and butter is considered adairy products and dairy products are high in calcium.Based on my findings I believe that I do not meet the recommended dailyallowance for calcium. I say this because I do not eat a lot of dairy products andI do not eat as many meals as I should each day.I would recommend to someone that they ensure to eat a lot of dairy products
