In this Veggie Health Magazine article, Dr Justine Butler outlines that dairy is not the best source of calcium and explores the link between dairy consumption and osteoporosis.

The article provides information on healthy vegan sources of calcium including tofu (soya bean curd), molasses, oats, dark green leafy vegetables, pulses, dried fruits, tahini (sesame seed paste), nuts and seeds.
