This study evaluated Ca intake in Hong Kong Chinese children and examined the association between long-term Ca intake and bone mineral content (BMC) in children.
Longitudinal dietary intake from birth to 5 years was obtained in 128 children (sixty-seven boys, sixty-one girls).
Ca intakes were evaluated by dietary history and cross-checked with food frequency and 24 h recall.
At age 5 years BMC was determined at the one-thud distal radius of the right arm using single-photon absorptiometry.
The mean Ca intake of 133 children at 5 years was 546 (SD 325) mg/d. Milk was the chief source of Ca (43.5%). From birth to 5 years, 90% of the children had been taking milk regularly.
