Hi Pooja, you have not given your haemoglobin level and condition (which month of pregnancy/breastfeeding). Apart from iron & folic acid supplements recommended by your doctor you need to include following foods more in your diet. Whole beans, legumes especially soybeans, cowpea, black channa, dark green leafy vegetables, bajra, dates, jaggery, egg yolk, liver (if non vegetarian). You may also take some citrus fruits which help increase absorption of iron. Hope this helps.
