It is vital for the health of our families to have enough calcium. Now, families can increase their calcium intake, not with chalky supplements, but with tasty BLTs and PB&Js.

Consider this: Despite their milk mustaches many American families aren’t getting enough calcium. This includes moms and dads as well as their children. The Surgeon General states that 75 percent of Americans don’t get enough calcium from their diets.

Now, it is easier to find calcium rich foods. The sandwich is a household staple. Sandwiches offer ample opportunities to boost calcium intake. Start with two slices of Wonder Classic Sandwich bread, or Wonder Classic Sandwich bread. Two slices have twice the calcium of an eight-ounce glass, and two slices also contain vitamin D which aids in calcium absorption. Your family will soon be able to meet its calcium needs by adding a slice cheese and some milk.

“Balancing the food your family enjoys while providing the nutrition you want them to have can be difficult,”Rich Seban is chief marketing officer at Wonder bread. “With Wonder’s added calcium and vitamin D offerings, giving your family the nutrition they need never tasted so good.”

Wonder bread launched their Sandwich Wonder-izer recently to help families understand how much calcium and other nutrients they’re getting. www.wonderbread.comThis allows families to create thousands of sandwiches by choosing from a variety of ingredients. The Sandwich Wonder-izer allows users to monitor the nutritional content of each ingredient as they make their sandwich.

If you prefer to follow a recipe, Sandwich Wonder-izer has dozens of ready-made sandwiches available. Or, you can make your own. This sandwich can be paired with a glass milk to get more than two-thirds your recommended daily calcium intake.
