Calcium is a mineral which is essential for strong bones and teeth, and is needed for muscles and the nervous system.
Men and women lose calcium from their bones as we grow older, and women lose more calcium than men.
Getting sufficient calcium in your diet throughout life is important to limit calcium loss from the bones which make them porous.
The best sources of calcium include dairy food such as milk, yoghurt and cheese, and soy alternatives that are calcium fortified.

The UNCLE TOBYS name and logo has significant historical significance, it was designed by Nellie Love, the niece of Clifford Love – the founder of UNCLE TOBYS, who was a keen artist and a student of literature. She suggested the name and designed the logo based on the great literacy character in the “Life of Times of Tristram Shandy” by Laurence Sterne, first published in 1759. In the book Uncle Toby is a gentle, uncomplicated lover of his fellow man. The original design of Uncle Toby standing with the Widow Wadman has seen little changes over the years, so has become a treasured representation of the UNCLE TOBYS heritage.
