The best foods for the bones — in this order:

1. Vegetables, especially leafy greens, and also roots and stalks (for the iron and calcium, and for vitamins K and C, which, together with protein, help deposit the collagen matrix).

2. Protein, such as animal foods, beans, and soy foods (for the collagen matrix).

3. Stock (for the minerals).

4. Whole grains (for the magnesium).

5. Foods rich in trace minerals, such as seaweeds, nuts, and seeds.

6. Edible bones (for the calcium and other minerals).

7. Healthy fats (for the fat-soluble vitamins needed for the bones, such as vitamins K and D).
