Nails are made up of keratin, a substance that relies on an adequate amount of protein to produce. If you lack in the protein intake, you could have thin, brittle nails that break easily.

You can also get protein from dairy foods like milk, cheese and yogurt, which also ups your calcium intake. Calcium is another nutrient your nails rely on for growth.
