Things to know about Iron rich foods: 1. Adding meat or seafood to a meal will increase iron absorption from eggs, dals, vegetables in that meal. 2. Calcium-rich foods in the same meal will impede iron absorption, so avoid combining iron with dairy foods. 3. Iron-rich foods absorb better in the presence of vitamin C. 4. Iron-rich vegetarian foods include lentils and other legumes (dals), beans (rajma etc), dried fruits (raisins, dates, prunes, apricots etc), leafy green veggies (broccoli, different saag/keerai varieties), millets (ragi, etc). 5. Vitamin C is in mangoes, tomatoes, pumpkin, lime and other citrus fruits, capsicum, etc. Bonus: fermenting, sprouting and soaking grains and dals hugely increases how much iron is absorbed from it. Spinach is not easy to absorb iron from. Too many chemicals in it that impede absorption, phytates, oxalates, fibre.

Thank you so much for the suggestions.

I'll definitely try them
