    well considering milk chocolate contains milk, and milk contains calcium, maybe, but still the chances are low

    Chocolate in and of itself does not contain calcium. Milk chocolate, of course, will contain some calcium, but it shouldn't be your main source of the nutrient. If you need more calcium in your diet, there are a number of calcium supplements on the market, including some that are chocolate flavoured.

    Calcium Rich Foods:

    In addition to choosing foods from the following list, you should learn to look at food labels and simply choose foods that have a high %DV for calcium and at least 20% or more. You may find big differences in the calcium content of foods, even among different brands of the same foods, such as cheese, juice, and bread.

    Yogurt, plain

    Yogurt, fruit

    Milk, low fat or nonfat

    Milk, whole

    Cheese, including American cheese, Ricotta cheese, Cheddar cheese, Mozzarella cheese, etc.

    Milk shakes

    Eggnog

    Remember that just because your child is eating cheese doesn't mean that she is getting a lot of calcium. Be sure to check the nutrition label to make sure the cheese has a lot of calcium in it. And also look for foods made with these calcium rich foods as ingredients, such as a Macaroni and cheese (cheese), pudding (milk), nachos (cheese), etc.

    Nondairy Foods with Calcium

    Getting enough calcium can be a especially hard if your kids are allergic to milk. These nondairy foods can be good choices for kids with milk allergies who need calcium:

    Salmon

    Tofu

    Rhubarb

    Sardines

    Collard Greens

    Spinach

    Turnip Greens

    Okra

    White Beans

    Baked Beans

    Broccoli

    Peas

    Brussel Sprouts

    Sesame Seeds

    Bok Choy

    Almonds

    Calcium Fortified Foods

    In addition to the large number of calcium rich foods that are naturally found, like milk and cheese, there are also a lot of foods that are now fortified with calcium. These can be especially good choices if your kids don't like to drink milk.

    Calcium fortified breakfast cereal, including General Mills Whole Grain Total, Total Raisin Bran, Total Vanilla Yogurt, Total with Strawberries, and Total Honey Clusters, which have 100%DV of calcium per serving!

    Calcium fortified orange juice

    Calcium fortified soy milk

    SunnyD with Calcium (most SunnyD products don't have calcium, so look for the one that does if your child needs extra calcium in his diet)

    Instant oatmeal

    Calcium fortified bread, English muffins, etc.

    Calcium fortified drink mixes, such as Pediasure or Carnation Instant Breakfast

    Other calcium fortified breakfast cereals, including General Mills Golden Grahams (350mg)

    Milk chocolate has the tiniest, itsiest bit of calcium, but not enough to do anything for you whatsoever.

    You would have to eat a tonne of chocolate a day to see any differences in your calcium levels!!!!

    No, chocolate is chocolate. It might have traces of calcium. But not enough.

    One is not going to hurt him, but a large amount of chocolate can cause poisoning in dogs. Dogs that have been poisoned by chocolate usually present with seizures. If your dog has a seizure, go immediately to the vet.

    No. Eating a balanced diet will definitely help, but that's about it.
