Answer:
You may include following foods in her daily diet • dark green leafy vegetables, like mustard (sarson), chana saag, chulai, arbi ke patte, mint. • cereals like bajra, jowar, whole wheat, chirwa, murmura • pulses & legumes- Bengal gram, lentils, lobia, soybeans • Fruits like watermelon, raisins, dried peaches & apricots Do add some citrus fruits also as they help in absorption of iron. Hope it helps.
