We evaluated the effects of self-selected diets on calcium absorption and calculated retention in girls during pre-, early, and late puberty.

We found that calcium intake was similar among girls of all ages and all degrees of pubertal development and was below the recommended dietary allowance (1200 mg/d) for 21 of 25 girls aged > or = 11 y. The early pubertal period was… CONTINUE READING
