KEEPING up with a daughter such as personal trainer and TV personality Michelle Bridges, would indeed require a certain level of fitness.

But Maureen Partridge - who assigns herself the number of: "very, very, late 60s' is doing that with her own brand healthy diet.

It's a change from how she was eating in her "early 60s' when a diagnosis of early osteoporosis prompted a diet rethink.

"So many people think they're getting enough calcium, but I've recently discovered that the average intake of calcium in women is 25-40% lower than recommended."

Following in her daughter's very active footsteps, Maureen goes to the gym a few times per week to pump iron, do a circuit and some aerobics.

On Saturday night, she lives it up with some New Vogue dancing.

She said that exercise classes , besides keeping a check on her weight, also provided company.

"It all helps me keep up with my daughter and new grandchild," she said.

THE MEAL PLAN: 

Maureen's meal plan includes hearty yet healthy home-cooked recipes, which incorporate Pauls PhysiCAL milk for added calcium. Maureen's favourites include home baked fresh raspberry custard served with sliced nectarines, a long-standing Bridges family favourite, and zucchini, corn & chickpea fritters with fresh salsa.

Pauls PhysiCAL contains 40% more calcium than regular milk, plus added vitamin D to aid calcium absorption2. In fact, just two glasses provides 100% of the recommended daily calcium intake3.
