Calcium Counts was founded by Jessica North, formerly Director of the Australian Research Institute for Environment and Sustainability at Macquarie University. Jessica remains an advisor on the award-winning Habitat Stepping Stones program. She has also spent several years researching some of the remarkable women of colonial Sydney and has written two books, published by Allen & Unwin.
About Calcium Counts
After a routine scan, Jessica was dismayed to discover that her bone density was so low. She knew she needed to increase her calcium intake, but didn’t want to gain weight at the same time. So she began working with nutritionists to find the foods that provided the most calcium for the fewest calories.
Because so many people wanted to know the same thing, Jessica decided to make her findings available to everyone.
