Iron Sources

April 10, 2018



Adequate iron intake is important for forming red blood cells which carry oxygen through the body.



Good sources of iron include : meat, tofu, spinach, broccoli,  pumpkin seeds, nuts, baked potato, cooked beans, fortified cereals, dried aprioct/raisins and supplements.


Vitamin C has shown to be beneficial in assisting with iron absorption; so some orange slices with your iron containing food is a great idea!


Coffee, tea and calcium/calcium rich foods has shown to hinder absorption.


Eat Well, Live Well
