Hello, dates, dry grapes are rich in natural iron. When ever you give milk boil dates in it,this makes the milk rich in iron. try to incorporate aamla either raw,in juice or in chatni form ,that is also roich in vitaminc,valcium and iron too.

Hi Amrita, ? Here’s a list of iron-rich foods that you could feed your little one: 1. All dals and sprouts (as a snack or added to salads); 2. Lightly cooked beans (without heavy tadka) like rajma, white chana, black chana, lobia and dried peas; 3. Vegetables like spinach, broccoli, baked potato, peas, green capsicum and tomatoes; 4. Seeds such as pumpkin, sesame, squash seeds and sunflower seeds; 5. Dried fruits like dried apricots/figs/peaches/prunes/raisins; 6. Nuts like peanuts, walnuts, pistachios, almonds and cashews; 7. Cereals like rice and oats; 8. Whole wheat bread; 9. Tofu. ? Remember, eating foods rich in vitamin C with meals boosts the absorption of iron from food strawberries, broccoli, guava, amla, capsicum, oranges and mausambi. ? Cooking in cast iron cookware further facilitates iron absorption.
