A lack of calcium can cause tiredness, muscle cramps, weak nails, tingling and low mood.  It is especially important for teenagers to help prevent their bones thinning when they are older.  Good sources include; sesame seeds, broccoli, chickpeas, kale, pulses, dried fruit, such as raisins, prunes, figs and dried apricots, unsweetened soya, rice and oat drinks.
