Here are the directions for the display...
1/4 c newborn
31/2 c 10 yr old
7c 15 yr old
61/2c woman with detectable osteoporosis (30-40% bone loss)
I use dairy council food models in the background for good sources of
calcium...I also have a model of a small skeleton and some pictures
of a bone x-ray of both normal bone and osteoporosis. I usually play
a guessing game with the kids and put up the cup measurement cards
and have them match the age cards. You can use big zip lock bags,
but I like the clear plastic jars...
I would also recommend a new video that I really love...called "A
crash course on calcium"...for order info call 1-800-WHY-MILK
good luck and BONE-Appetite!

Subject: Osteo Teaching Aid
Earlier in the year (1/31 or 2/1/98), someone posted the "how to" for an
osteoporosis teaching aid which used flour to demonstrate calcium amounts
I've mis-placed the information and would like to use this for an osteoporosis
prevention project I am working on. Could someone help me out and re-send it?
Also, Laura, are the PHNutr posts archived? If so, how can they be accessed?
Many thanks in advance!
