Support your way to healthier bones

Nutrition & Wellbeing

They are what separates you from a jellyfish, but have you ever given your bones any real thought? If not, here is what you can do to help maintain bone health.

As a framework of organs that help you move, produce red and white blood cells, and prevent your brain from landing on your lungs, bones are one of the most important parts of your body. Importantly, they also store minerals like calcium and phosphorus, which, in turn, keep them strong.

So, given their significance, how can you ensure that they remain in optimal health? The answer is simple: with a well-balanced diet rich in calcium, magnesium and vitamin D – along with a side of regular physical exercise , of course!

Here are a few of our favourite iCook recipes , which contain a good mix of calcium, magnesium and other essential vitamins and minerals, to help you look after your health – and that of your bones. Best of all, you can prepare all of the recipes with the help of your iCook cookware and some are sure to win your kids’ hearts.

Avocado egg salad

This healthy avocado egg salad, which also doubles up as a spread, is great for breakfast or a snack. Avocado is a good source of healthy fats, while the eggs contain vitamin D – a key ingredient for maintaining healthy bones. The addition of fresh green leafy vegetables also provides a good intake of calcium and other vitamins and minerals.

Rainbow salad

The best thing about this easy-to-make rainbow salad is not that it contains a wide variety of colourful and nutritional vegetables or that you’re likely to already have the ingredients at home, but that you can chop and change the ingredients to suit the contents of your fridge or pantry. Just use fresh vegetables and you’re good to go. Not to mention that no cooking is required – only chopping and mixing!

And, since it contains a lot of colourful ingredients, your kids are likely to love its brightness. If they’re not convinced, try serving it in the shape of a rainbow to see if you can win them over.
