I recently read that a cup of yogurt, glass of milk, glass of orange juice, and 1 ounce of cheese will provide naturally the needed daily calcium. Will an orange replace the juice, or does it have to be juice with calcium added? Thanks

The article is probably referring to orange juice with calcium added. Each item you list, including calcium fortified orange juice, contains close to 300mg of calcium, which is about 1/3 of the amount recommended for the average adult. An orange itself contains 52mg of calcium.
