SW friendly iron rich food

Any dark green leafy foods are good iron sources, spinach, kale, watercress, cabbage, broccoli, sprouts, peas etc. Red meat is also a good bet. Lots of info on the interweb about it.
Iron-rich foods include:
  • dark-green leafy vegetables, such as watercress and curly kale
  • iron-fortified bread
  • beans
  • nuts
  • meat
  • apricots
  • prunes
  • raisins

I used to be anaemic and the best thing you could do is to have vitamin c with your iron rich meal too as this helps absorption. I used to have ribena or juice. You could have no added sugar squash or just have high in vit c veg with your meal too?

I'm on iron tablets although as I get diarrhoea I can only take them for four days with a weeks break....it'll take me years to get my levels up lol!
I take vitamin c tablets before a meal, try baby spinach raw rather than cooked, (increases the vitamin c).
Limit the calcium taken at the same time as iron rich foods..so a watercress sandwich would be better with ham/beef than cheese.
