Cream cheese is lacking

When talking about calcium-rich dairy products, don’t consider cream cheese. Unfortunately, you don’t get nutrient points for adding this to your bagel each day, as the calcium content in cream cheese is nearly non-existent. Two tablespoons (about as much as you likely put on a bagel) only provides 18 milligrams. Bearing in mind the daily-recommended intake for calcium is between 1200 and 1500 milligrams a day, this is nearly nothing.
