Dont worry these are the recommendation based on your report.

Iron-rich foods in India includes mushroom, cauliflower leaves, beetroot, potatoes, broccoli, spinach, soybeans, watermelon, pomegranate, apples, strawberries, vitamin C rich fruits, liver, chicken breast, red meat/ground beef, turkey meat, shellfish, prawns, tuna fish, black beans, chickpeas, brown rice, dry fruits include these foods in your diet

Vitamin C has been shown to enhance iron absorption. It captures non-heme iron and stores it in a form that's more easily absorbed by your body ( 3 ). Foods high in vitamin C include citrus fruits, dark green leafy vegetables, bell peppers, melons and strawberries.
