In brief: Balanced diet
A balanced diet will promote your overall health.
Make sure you have a calcium intake of 1000 mg day through food or supplements. Supplemental vitamin d (up to 2000 iu/day) may help if you like many have low vitamin d. Discuss with a dietitian to get personalized recommendations. Depending on how fracture happened you may want to consider asking your doctor about getting a bone density test.
