PostSubject: Iron deficiency - any ideas?   Sat Nov 17, 2007 6:59 am

Does anyone have any recommended vegetarian foods that are high in iron please? Shadow can't take iron tablets, they make her ill so I worry about balancing her diet more. I thought spinach is high in iron but I'm looking for as many alternatives as possible.

Foods she doesn't eat that are high in Iron include cous cous, sesame, seaweed, nutritional yeast, any form of oil, broccoli and kale.

If anyone can help it would be appreciated as this causes problems sometimes and I worry about her. Thanks.

Most green (esp. dark geen) leafy foods. Adding frsh herbs like basil, corriander etc to foods (you can buy the plants from many super markets. Just a few extra leaves at each meal can make all the difference.

Peas? Really? That's fantastic, she loves peas so we need to feed her up on those when she has problems. Thanks Tess. Worship

Aoife, thanks for your tip. This is also excellent news as this means I can add lovely flavours to dishes and help her as well. Wonderful!

Any more tips re certainly appreciated everyone. Smile
