TOMA LECHE for Healthy, Strong Mom & Baby
Date:11/17/2009

SAN CLEMENTE, Calif., Nov. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Calcium is an essential mineral for building strong bones, whether you're 12, 30 or - especially - if you're pregnant. Unfortunately, with most women only getting two thirds of the daily-recommended intake, this condition leaves them, and often times their growing fetus, starved for calcium. Of the recommended 1000 mg of calcium needed daily, the March of Dimes (nacersano.org), an organization committed to moms and baby's health, reports that women on average only get about 700 mg. And when they get pregnant or start breastfeeding, women don't realize that they need to further increase their calcium intake to keep themselves and their babies healthy. That's why the March of Dimes and the California Milk Processor Board (CMPB) - the creator of GOT MILK? and TOMA LECHE - have partnered to educate pregnant women and nursing mothers about the importance of increased calcium consumption through natural sources like milk.

"The baby needs calcium from the mother to build strong bones and teeth," says Dr. Diana Ramos, a March of Dimes volunteer and an assistant professor in Ob/Gyn at the Keck School of Medicine at the University of Southern California. "If women don't get enough calcium in the diet during pregnancy or while nursing, the calcium the baby needs will be extracted from the mother's bones, leaving her with possible future health problems such as osteoporosis."

While expecting or nursing women need take in at least 1000 mg of calcium daily, depending on their condition, research indicates that some pregnant women may need as much as 1500 mg. Milk is the number one source of calcium, with one eight-ounce cup yielding 300 mg. Yogurts and cheeses are other ways to add calcium to the diet.

"TOMA LECHE's goal has always been to educate families about the health benefits of drinking milk," says Steve James, executive director of the CMPB. "With our awar
