In brief: Fruits, vegetables

Ideally you would want to take plenty of calcium, vitamin d, fruits and vegetables.
Calcium is also used by the body to balance the ph, so a highly acidic diet can cause calcium to be pulled from the bone as well.

In brief: Bone strength

The best way to increase bone density is through a combination of adequate calcium and vitamin d intake, along with weight bearing exercise.
If you are a post-menopausal female, ask your health care provider to order a DEXA scan to meausre your bone density.
