Washington: Most parents make sure that their children drink milk and eat other calcium-rich foods, as it helps build strong bones.Now, a new study has suggested that it would be beneficial if they also give their kids salmon, almonds and other foods high in magnesium - another nutrient that may play an important role in bone health."Lots of nutrients are key for children to have healthy bones. One of these appears to be magnesium," said lead author Steven A. Abrams MD, FAAP, professor of pediatrics at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston. "Calcium is important, but, except for those children and adolescents with very low intakes, may not be more important than magnesium," he noted.
