Thanks for the wonderful invitation, I recently went to a nutritional workshop which was hosted by Fonterra Brands Malaysia to raise awareness of the importance of building strong bone health across each stage of life in conjunction with the World Osteoporosis Day.

The nutritional workshop focused on empowering mothers to take the reigns as the nutrition gatekeeper for the family to ensure that dairy, which is a rich source of calcium, is always incorporated into the family’s daily diet.

Fonterra produces well-known household dairy brands such as Fernleaf, Anmum, Anlene, Anchor, Perfect Italiano, Chesdale and Mainland, which cater to a family’s nutritional needs across each stage of their life.

“Our bones need different levels of calcium at different life stages. While we cannot stop bones from losing density with age, a strong calcium reserve built while we are young helps to ensure that we maintain the right levels of bone density and reduce the risk of osteoporosis as we grow older.

“Unfortunately, Malaysians today are not getting the adequate levels of calcium for optimum bone health. According to the Malaysian Adult Nutrition Survey (MANS) in 2014, Malaysians consume less than half of the recommended levels of calcium in their daily diet. It is important for Malaysians to take the right steps to ensure they remain mobile and independent later in life,” said Ms Megawati Suzari, Director of New Product Development, Scientific & Regulatory Affairs of Fonterra Brands Malaysia.

“Today is all about highlighting that just two or three servings of dairy a day, such as a glass of milk, a slice of cheese, or a pot of yoghurt, can ensure that children and adults meet the recommended level of calcium.

“As well as consuming dairy for calcium, it is important to get enough vitamin D through sunexposure and to be physically active, especially through weight-bearing and muscle-strengthening exercises such as running or skipping, to help prevent osteoporosis,” said Ms Indra Balaratnam, a reputable Consultant Dietitian.

Ms Balaratnam and Ms Suzari were joined by Chef Noorfiruz Mohamad Noor, from Fonterra Brands Malaysia’s foodservice brand Anchor Food Professionals, to share recipes that they use to incorporate dairy into their families’ daily meals.

    Having strong bones are so important. Unfortunately, as we age, we are absorbing calcium slower, which makes it difficult to build bones.
