Diet during recovery of broken bones


My husband broke his ankle at several places and has to stay off his feet for several weeks. I make sure that he eats healthy; lots of veggies, fruit, lean meat, fish, complex carbs, etc along with plenty of fluids. I was wondering if he needs more of a certain food group (for instance proteins) now that his body needs to mend itself. I also give him vitamins, especially calcium tablets also glucosmaine chondrt. Any ideas? TIA.

Hello, Calcium rich foods are what he needs. The calcium vitamins are good also, but make sure it's "Calcium plus Vit. D" and not just calcium. The body can not absorb calcium wihtout vit. D.
