During your pregnancy, the recommended daily intake (RDI) is the same as it is prior to pregnancy: 1000mg a day for women aged 19 to 50 years and 1300mg a day for adolescents or those aged over 51. Most women don’t get nearly enough of this important mineral. Aim for 2-3 servings of dairy products or calcium-rich foods a day. Pregnant adolescents (under the age of 18) should aim for 3-4 servings of dairy products a day.
